Giancarlo Stanton is back. The Marlins' outfielder returns to the lineup Tuesday night, previously on the disabled list since July 7 after undergoing knee surgery.
Prior to the injury, Stanton had been batting .284 with 19 home runs, 50 RBIs and 46 runs for Miami. The Marlins are currently four game back of the Mets, who are in third, in the N.L. East standings.
Here are tonight's lineups for the Fish, as they look to make ground in the east.
