The Tarpons will continue a series against the Fort Myers Miracle with a doubleheader scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Game 2 will begin 30 minutes following the conclusion of Game 1, with both games designated to be seven innings in regulation.
Stanton, 29, was placed on the 10-day injured list on April 1 with a left biceps strain. The Panorama, California native was 2-for-8 with seven walks, four strikeouts and a run scored in three games with New York prior to being sidelined.
