Giancarlo Stanton is likely out the the remainder of the season. Stanton has been sidelined as a result of a hand injury, and according to Clark Spencer of The Miami Herald, an abnormal amount of scar tissue could prevent his return in 2015.

He said doctors in New York told him "the strength’s not there. Don’t overdo it. Do what’s manageable."
