The injury occurred on the same night that the St. Louis Cardinals went up a half game in the Wild Card race, as Stanton was hurt on an awkward slide into second base. It took place in the ninth inning as the Home Run Derby Champion was attempting to stretch a single into a double.
He had three hits on the night, including his 25th home run of the year, and knocked in three runs before exiting early. The NL Wild Card race has already seen Clayton Kershaw go down for the Dodgers, as well as Matt Holliday for the Cardinals.
Miami also placed pitcher Adam Conley on the DL with finger tendinitis in his pitching hand. Conley is 8-6 with a 3.94 ERA in 24 starts this year, but was touched up for five runs in four innings against Chicago on Saturday.
