by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton sits, Ichiro Suzuki bats third Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.

"I talked with G four or five days ago, just planted the seed," manager Mike Redmond said, per MLB.com. "Looking at the schedule, this looked like it would be a good day. Not thinking otherwise."

Stanton has hit just .167/.233/.278 with one home run in 36 at-bats in May.

"With him, sometimes he will get out of his strike zone," Redmond said. "It happens with all hitters, not just him. Sometimes it’s good to just take a day, and let them sit back and relax. We’ve done that with a few guys. Give him a mental break, and get him back in there tomorrow. It’s tough to get him out of the lineup. He has the ability to hit a home run every time. But at the same time, too, we need him for the long haul. We need him fresh."

It's the first break for Stanton after starting each of the team's first 31 games in right field. Ichiro is getting the start in right field and batting third.

The Marlins are slight underdogs (-102) against the Giants in San Francisco Sunday.
