Stanton still sidelined; Morrison's knees sore

Stanton still sidelined; Morrison's knees sore

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Marlins outfielders are getting banged up at quite a rate.

Giancarlo Stanton is still sore and will be out a couple more days, manager Ozzie Guillen said Wednesday morning. Stanton hasn't played since he was hit on the left wrist by a fastball against the Mets on Sunday.

Logan Morrison, who had his right knee scoped in December, made his Grapefruit League debut Tuesday, going 1-for-2 with a double and an RBI, but he felt some soreness in his knees Wednesday morning.

"He was a little sore. I expect that to be a little sore," Guillen said. "We've got to monitor him very carefully in that situation. He was fine yesterday, but today he's a little sore in his knees."

Guillen said he didn't know when Morrison would be able to play the field.

Meanwhile, X-rays on outfield prospect Kyle Jensen, who was hit on the left elbow by a fastball Tuesday against the Braves, have come back negative "so far," Guillen said. The Marlins manager said the area was still swollen, which can sometimes impede an X-ray's effectiveness.
