Stanton is out of the lineup for the team's season finale against the Nationals on Sunday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton will sit out each of the Marlins' final three games after returning earlier than expected from a groin issue. There's no indication the injury has resurfaced but Destin Hood will man right field in his place.

Stanton is not in Saturday's lineup against the Nationals, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Marlins will rest several regulars Saturday as they play out the string against the Nationals. Jeff Francoeur will start in right field and hit fifth Saturday. Stanton has now sat out two games in a row, and it would not come as a big surprise if he was also absent from Sunday's lineup as he is fairly banged up at this point in the season.

Stanton is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Nationals, according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton has just five hits in 10 games since rejoining the lineup Sept. 16, so manager Don Mattingly decided to hold him out Friday. Marcell Ozuna will cover right field in Stanton's place, and Derek Dietrich will replace Ozuna in left field.

Stanton is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton homered in each of the Marlins' last two games, but he also started back-to-back days for the first time in over a month, so manager Don Mattingly decided to hold him out Wednesday. Stanton is presumably able to pinch hit, but he will open on the bench while Ichiro Suzuki gets the nod in right field.

Stanton went 1-for-2 with a walk and a home run in a 1-0 win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton provided all the offense for the Marlins, as they managed just three hits all night off Tanner Roark and the Nationals. It's Stanton's second straight day with a home run, bringing his total to 27 on the season, which matches his total from last year, albeit in many fewer games.

Stanton will start in right field Tuesday for the second day in a row, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tuesday's start will be the third Stanton has made since returning to action Sept. 6, and will mark the first time he has been in the lineup back-to-back days since Aug. 12 and 13. He was taken out of Monday's game after walking in his third plate appearance, but he looked plenty healthy blasting a long home run earlier in the game.

Stanton went 1-for-2 with a walk and a huge solo homer in a 4-3 win over the Nationals on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Staton's blast travelled roughly 466 feet to left field, and was his 26th of the year. It's been a rough 2016 campaign for Stanton, whose batting average plummeted to .244 this year, the lowest of his career. His .497 slugging percentage is also down significantly from the .606 mark he posted in 2015 where he hit 27 home runs in just 74 games.

Stanton is in the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton was limited to bench duty for two days after starting Friday for the first time since Aug. 13, but his presence in Monday's lineup indicates he was simply being rested and did not suffer any sort of setback with his groin injury. Stanton will man right field and hit fifth in the Marlins' batting order Monday night.

Stanton is out of the lineup Sunday against the Phillies, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Marlins haven't indicated that Stanton suffered any setbacks with his recent groin injury after returning to the starting lineup Friday, but with the team's playoff hopes falling by the wayside, there's little reason to push the outfielder after he returned from the injury earlier than anticipated. Stanton will likely make a few more starts over the final two weeks, but don't expect the Marlins to use him on an everyday basis. Derek Dietrich will make a start in the outfield Sunday while Stanton remains available off the bench as a pinch-hitting option.
