UPDATE — Giancarlo Stanton is expected to miss the remainder of the season with a groin injury.

ORIGINAL —Miami placed Giancarlo Stanton and Adam Conley on the disabled list Sunday, according to MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro.

Robert Andino and Hunter Cervenka were recalled in the corresponding roster move, according to Frisaro.

Stanton was being examined for a groin injury after an awkward slide into second base in Saturday’s 8-7 loss to the White Sox. He attempted to stretch a single into a double and was thrown out at second base.

Stanton is batting .244/.329/.496 with 25 home runs and 70 RBIs over 103 games with the Marlins this season. He had a slow start to the season but has helped the Marlins remain in playoff contention.

While Stanton suffered his injury in the ninth inning Saturday night, Conley was plagued by a sore left hand over his four innings of work, according to Frisaro.

Behind Jose Fernandez, Conley has been the most consistent starter in Miami’s rotation. Over 130.1 innings this season, he has pitched to a 3.94 ERA and 4.22 FIP.

Miami acquired Cervenka from the Braves last weekend, but he was optioned after the Marlins’ extra innings game against the Giants.

Andino, 32, was Miami’s second round draft pick in 2002. He is batting .269 over 107 contests in Triple-A.

Miami enters play Sunday behind St. Louis for the second National League Wild Card spot.
