Marlins activate OF Stanton

The Miami Marlins reinstated outfielder Giancarlo Stanton from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday.

Stanton, who was recovering from surgery to remove loose bodies from his right knee, batted .284 with 19 home runs, 20 doubles and 50 RBI through 80 games this season before landing on the DL in early July.

To make room for the 22-year-old slugger, the Marlins placed infielder Donnie Murphy on the 15-day DL, retroactive to August 4, with a left hamstring strain.

Murphy, 29, appeared in 33 games with Miami this season and batted .194 with three home runs and eight RBI.
