Giancarlo Stanton undergoes surgery
Manager Ozzie Guillen says Sunday's procedure went well. The Marlins say the 22-year-old Stanton is expected to be out for four to six weeks.
The Marlins went a man short in their final game before the All-Star break, and will activate outfielder Emilio Bonifacio from the 15-day disabled list when they return Friday at home against the Nationals. Bonifacio has been out since May 20 with a sprained left thumb.
Stanton, a first-time All-Star, is batting .284 with a team-high 19 homers and 50 RBIs. He made his first start in five games on Saturday but lasted just two innings.
