Marlins vs. Braves lineups: Giancarlo Stanton out again

The Miami Marlins are without their best hitter again on Tuesday night, as Giancarlo Stanton is not in the starting lineup.

Stanton has not appeared in a game since Sept. 16, and is unlikely to appear in Miami's series against the Atlanta Braves. The slugger is dealing with an oblique injury, and hopes to return this weekend.

Both Ozzie Guillen and former Marlins skipper Fredi Gonzalez have announced the starting lineups for Tuesday's game, and they are as follows:

Miami Marlins

LF Bryan Petersen
CF Gorkys Hernandez
SS Jose Reyes
1B Carlos Lee
RF Greg Dobbs
2B Donovan Solano
C Rob Brantly
3B Gil Velazquez
SP Nathan Eovaldi

Atlanta Braves

CF Reed Johnson
LF Martin Prado
RF Jason Heyward
3B Chipper Jones
1B Freddie Freeman
2B Dan Uggla
C Brian McCann
SS Andrelton Simmons
SP Kris Medlen

Miami's offense will have to face off against baseball's hottest pitcher, Kris Medlen. In 82 innings since the All-Star break, Medlen is 8-0 with a 0.77 ERA. In that span, Medlen has held opposing hitters to a .192 average, while striking out 83 and walking just 13.
