Marlins News:

Giancarlo Stanton is expected to be out for four to six weeks with a hand injury, and according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, the Marlins confirmed the recovery time.

"From everything we've gotten, surgery was a success," Marlins manager Dan Jennings said. "Now you just go through the healing process to have him back. From what we've been told, you're looking at about a 4-6 week window, recovery time."

Zack Greinke was dominant and the Marlins struggled offensively in a 2-1 loss to the Dodgers on Sunday afternoon.

Jose Urena only allowed one run on Sunday. But it was not enough.

Tom Koehler stepped into the rotation and pitched well against the Dodgers, striking out five and not issuing a walk.

Stanton may be out for a lengthy period of time, but one teammate believes he can return rather quickly.

The Marlins still have not considered trading their starting pitching depth.

Buyers or sellers? Miami has not made a decision yet.

With Stanton out, Ichiro should have an opportunity to inch closer to 3,000 career hits.

Andrew McCutchen was hit on the elbow but X-Rays were negative.
