08:19 AM ET 04.06 | Mike Stanton took batting practice Tuesday, reportedly smashing several balls into the stands, but he isn't likely to see so much as pinch hitting in the immediate future. Stanton, who was removed from Friday's opener after six innings, was dealing with some tightness in his left hamstring. After he got an MRI on Monday, the Marlins learned that Stanton suffered a mild strain to his left hamstring. Manager Edwin Rodriguez does not expect Stanton to rejoin the lineup until at least this weekend's series against the Astros. "He's going to be able to pinch hit but he's not going to be able to run," Rodriguez said. "He's at 65 or 70 percent right now, so for the next three or four days he might be able to pinch hit, and then probably for the weekend he might take the field."
