NEW YORK (AP) Injured Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton won't play again in the majors this season because of last week's beaning.

Stanton was hit in the face by a fastball from Milwaukee's Mike Fiers last Thursday. Stanton sustained facial fractures, dental damages, cuts that required stitches and two black eyes. Marlins president of baseball operations Mike Hill said Stanton also had concussion symptoms but has been given neurological clearance.

"It's the whole healing process, the healing of the bones and the swelling," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said before Wednesday's game against the New York Mets. "There's just not enough time for it to properly heal, and for him to get medically cleared to be able to play."
