Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton out 4-6 weeks, will have knee surgery Sunday

Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton will have surgery on his right knee Sunday and will be out of the Marlins lineup for four to six weeks, the team announced Saturday.

The Miami Herald's Manny Navarro reported, via Twitter, that Stanton will have surgery at 7 a.m. Sunday on the knee to remove bone chips. Stanton was pulled in the third inning of the Marlins' 3-2 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday.

Stanton had previously hoped to delay any knee surgery until after the season. The surgery ensures that Stanton will miss both Monday's Home Run Derby and Tuesday's All Star Game in Kansas City. Washington Nationals outfielder and fellow young superstar Bryce Harper will replace Stanton on the All-Star roster, MLB announced Saturday night.

The 22-year-old sensation Stanton will be missed in the Marlins' lineup. He was the team's only All-Star, and he's hitting .282 with a .915 OPS this season. He has 19 homers and 50 RBI.
