Stanton (side) is not in Thursday's lineup against the Rays, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Stanton was held out of Wednesday's game with what manager Don Mattingly called "a little soreness" on his right side, and the issue is apparently still persisting. The outfielder should continue to be considered day-to-day, and the Marlins will go with Cole Gillespie in right field Thursday.

Manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Stanton "has a little soreness" on his right side, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Mattingly's announcement gives a bit more context as to why Stanton was left out of the lineup for Wednesday's meeting with the Rays. The slugger hasn't looked like himself at the plate this month, slashing a mere .173/.287/.373 with four home runs and seven RBI compared to the eight home runs and 19 RBI he racked up in April. According to Craig Davis of the Sun Sentinel, Mattingly believes Stanton's rib soreness is minor and the hope is that he won't be sidelined long. Still, Stanton's status heading into Thursday's series finale is uncertain.

Stanton is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Stanton hasn't gotten a day off since April 29, and considering the slumping slugger's .140/.246/.280 slash line over the past two weeks, the Marlins decided it was a good time to get him some rest. Ichiro Suzuki will take over in right field in his stead Wednesday.

Stanton struck out in all four of his plate at-bats during Wednesday's loss to the Phillies, wrapping a hitless three-game set with the division rivals.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It's been quite the streaky start to the season for Stanton, who is batting just .098/.196/.195 in his last 12 games (41 at-bats). In the 11 games prior, he belted seven home runs while slashing .395/.531/.1.026. The power production is as expected overall, but with a meager .221 average and .335 OBP, the slugger has been more of an all-or-nothing proposition in 2016.

Stanton is not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Phillies, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Stanton will be rested for just the third time this season, giving way to Ichiro Suzuki in right field, who will also lead off the contest. Stanton is currently on pace for a career-best .984 OPS, and sits at third in the National League with 10 home runs. After going without a base knock Saturday to snap a three-game hitting streak, he'll get a regular maintenance day, though look for the slugger to be available off the bench in a pinch-hit situation.

Stanton is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Brewers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ichiro Suzuki will take over in right field for Stanton and bat leadoff Friday with manager Don Mattingly giving his star slugger the night off. Friday is believed to just be a routine day off for Stanton, so he figures to rejoin the lineup Saturday in Milwaukee.
