StantonMike Stanton's injury is becoming clearer. The Marlins slugger had a MRI Tuesday that revealed a mild left hamstring strain.

Stanton, who suffered the injury in the season opener on Friday, is available to pinch hit but not much beyond that as he is only running at "60-65 percent," Juan Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Stanton is hoping to return to the lineup by Friday, but it's anyone's guess whether that happens.
