Marlins Place Giancarlo Stanton On DL
Giancarlo Stanton was just starting to heat up at the plate and the Marlins have their first winning streak of the season after last night?s extra-inning victory, but now he?s been placed on the disabled list with a strained hamstring.
Stanton, who previously missed a week of action with a shoulder injury, exited last night?s win over the Mets in the 10th inning after getting hurt trying to leg out an infield single. For now he?s been diagnosed with a strain, but Stanton told reporters afterward that he heard a ?pop? and the right fielder is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam today.
Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that the Marlins will call up prospect Marcell Ozuna from Double-A to take Stanton?s place on the roster and in the outfield.
