The Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who leads the majors with 27 home runs and 67 RBI, will miss 4-6 weeks after breaking a bone in his left hand.

The injury happened during the Marlin’s 7-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the ninth inning after striking out against Pedro Baez. According to MLB.com, Stanton stated that he first tweaked his hand on a swing in the sixth inning, which also occurred during a strike out.

The All-Star outfielder will consult with team physician Dr. Lee Kaplan to get an official prognosis for his full recovery time.

Marlins manager Dan Jennings shared with the media what he feels is the best course of action for Stanton, “From what I’ve been told, it’s better to have the surgical procedure, healing-wise. But I think we’ll have a better and clearer understanding after he visits today (Saturday) with the hand specialist.”

Stanton is having an MVP-caliber and the injury is a blow not only to his outstanding season, but also to a Marlins team that is struggling to put wins together.

We wish Stanton a speedy recovery.
