Mike Stanton day-to-day with hamstring tightness

In the fifth inning of last night's game, Mike Stanton tried to leg out a single by at the last second lunging towards the bag. Which is never a good idea and especially when the bag is wet. Fortunately his foot hit the middle of bag, it could have been worse if it didn't, and he went tumbling to the ground.

After laying on the ground awhile, he got up and walked slowly to dugout. He was later said to have tightness in his right hamstring resulting from the tumble and is considered day-to-day.

Hamstring injuries are not new to Stanton, if you will remember, he missed the first six-weeks of the season when he injured his hamstring on Opening Day. But this time is different. On Open Day he pulled his hamstring, this is just tightness and those two have little in common.

Expect the Marlins to be very careful with him for the next few days, since there is absolutely no reason to risk aggravating the hamstring more.
