MIAMI (CBSMiami) – For the first time in 25 games, Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton will return to the lineup after recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery in early July.

Stanton’s absence has seen the Marlins lose any sort of power in the lineup and as a result the Marlins have gone 8-17 and fallen into a last-place tie in the NL East.

The knee bothered Stanton before the regular season began and tried to play through the knee issue. He was the Marlins lone All-Star, but had to miss the Home Run Derby and the All-Star Game so he could have surgery on the knee.

Before he went on the disabled list, Stanton was hitting .284 with 19 home runs and a .919 OPS through 80 games. During a brief rehab assignment in the minors, Stanton was 5 for 16 with two home runs.

Stanton will be in the starting lineup Tuesday night against the New York Mets.
