Left game with a hamstring injury. Anyone hear more?

Hope it's not severe. Sucks.

Marlins are hoping he can take batting practice tomorrow (Sunday) and be ready for Tuesday.

Update: Stanton (hamstring) will not be able to play in the field until this weekend at the earliest, MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports.

Recommendation: Manager Edwin Rodriguez said Stanton should be available to pinch-hit if necessary, but he also noted that Stanton is only at about “65, 70 percent.” Since Stanton will not be allowed to play the field, he will not be in the starting lineup for at least the next three games. Stanton still has not played since the season opener, but fantasy owners should remain patient and continue using other options until he returns.

Reasons why I worry:

1. 65-70 percent?! I feel like they always try to sugar coat it for the media and fans... so I'm really thinking 50% :-t :~( :,-(

2. Nagging hamstring injuries are the worst. Once you've pulled something, you're a lot more prone to pulling it again.

:-P :-P

I'm definitely a bit concerned... Nothing frustrates me more than a nagging injury that hampers a player all season long (that they almost ALWAYS deny hurting their production)...

You always hear a player wait till after the season to claim they played thru their injury all year long... Let's just hope the Marlins do the right thing here and let him get back to 100%! I invested waaaay too much in this guy for him to not pan out! :-o
