Giancarlo Stanton (shoulder) out
MIAMI -- Miami right fielder Giancarlo Stanton was a late scratch from the Marlins lineup on Friday night with a sore left shoulder.
Stanton was in the Marlins' lineup posted before batting practice. He was removed about a half hour before Miami's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Stanton was batting .167 (5-for-30) with no home runs or RBIs through the season's first nine games. He walked eight times and struck out 12.
Austin Kearns replaced Stanton in right for Friday night's game.
