Giancarlo Stanton (hand) has been cleared to swing off a tee.
He's been taking dry swings for a week and is ready to take the next step. While manager Dan Jennings wouldn't offer a firm timetable on when Stanton will return, he didn't rule out the slugger being activated at some point next week. "His hand looks good," Jennings said. "It's healed. The scar looks well. Now he's going to start off the tee and into flips. He'll progress at his timetable. It's good to see him making strides the right way." Jul 29 - 10:37 AM

Tim Kurkjian of ESPN reports that Giancarlo Stanton will miss 4-6 weeks with a broken bone in his left hand.

It's a very tough blow for the Marlins and fantasy owners alike. Hand injuries have notoriously sapped players of their power stroke upon returning as well, so it's unknown what version of Stanton will appear upon his return. The 25-year-old was in the midst of a monstrous season, slashing .265/.346/.606 with a league-leading 27 home runs and 67 RBI.

Joe Frisaro of reports that Giancarlo Stanton will have a CT scan and MRI on his injured left hand.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reported earlier in the day that Stanton had a broken bone in his hand. Frisaro adds that Stanton has so much swelling in his hand that the X-rays were unable to determine the full extent of the injury. While there's no clear timetable for how much time he may miss, a few weeks seems to be the best case scenario.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that Giancarlo Stanton has a broken bone in his left hand.

Rosenthal notes that exact details on the situation are not yet known. It's obviously a devastating blow to the Marlins and to fantasy owners if Stanton is facing any sort of extended absence. He experienced increased soreness in his hand while swinging during Friday's game. The Marlins should give clarity to his situation on Saturday, but fantasy owners need to prepare themselves for an extended absence.

It was a 3-for-4 effort for the outfielder, who was the only one doing much of anything at the plate. He gave the Marlins an early 1-0 lead with a second inning laser to center field off of Jaime Garcia. Stanton extends his major league home run lead to three at 27 and also leads the big leagues in RBI with 67 while batting a cool .268/.348/.618.

Giancarlo Stanton hit his 26th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

Stanton launched the homer, a two-run shot, off Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez in the first inning. It was his lone hit on the night. There has been a lot of that boom-or-bust from Stanton this year, but the boom has been plenty valuable -- he leads the league with 64 RBI and is fifth in the NL with 45 runs scored. He's hitting .261/.343/.604 overall.

Giancarlo Stanton was the entirety of the Marlins' offense in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Rockies, as the slugger hit a two-run double and a two-run homer.

Rockies starter David Hale will be seeing Stanton in his nightmares. Stanton socked a two-run double in the first inning, then one-upped himself by launching a two-run home run in the sixth inning. The mega-money star finished the game 2-for-3 and has been on a tear in June--he's now hit eight homers and driven in 15 runs in just 12 games this month. Stanton is slashing .260/.344/.613 with 23 homers and 59 RBI for the season.
Jun 13 - 7:14 PM

Giancarlo Stanton delivered a three-run homer and an RBI single against the Rockies on Thursday.

That's four homers in four games and seven this month for Stanton. He's on pace for a huge strikeout season and his OBP isn't what it usually is, but he's tops in the majors with 22 homers and 55 RBI.

Giancarlo Stanton's two-homer night wasn't enough for the Marlins, who lost in walk-off fashion to the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Stanton provided two of the Marlins' three runs with a pair of solo homers. One came in the first inning off of Mark Buehrle, and the other came in the seventh off of Roberto Osuna. Stanton moved a step ahead of Bryce Harper, who also homered on Tuesday, to take sole possession of the major league lead in home runs with 21. He's also knocked in a MLB-best 51 runs, stolen four bases, and hit .245/.332/.586.
