NEW YORK -

The Marlins will have a big bat back in their lineup.

Slugger Giancarlo Stanton was officially reinstated to the team.

Stanton has been out July 8 when he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery.

The Marlins offense can certainly use a jolt.

The Fish remain 17 games out of first place.

The Marlins and Mets meet at 7:10 p.m.
