Miami, FL (Sports Network) - The Miami Marlins have placed outfielder Giancarlo Stanton on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right hamstring.

Stanton was hurt during the 10th inning of Monday's game against the Mets while trying to beat out a tapper in front of the plate. He pulled up after he crossed first base and fell to the ground in pain before walking off under his own power.

An MRI exam is scheduled for Tuesday.

Stanton, who also missed about a week with a shoulder issue earlier this season, is batting .227 over 20 games with three homers and nine runs batted in.

The Marlins also placed first baseman Joe Mahoney on the DL, retroactive to April 28 with a right hamstring strain and recalled outfielder Marcell Ozuna from Double-A Jacksonville. Left-hander Brad Hand was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans after the Marlins used seven pitchers during Monday's 15-inning, 4-3 win.
