A "person familiar with the Marlins’ thinking" told Joel Sherman of the New York Post that the team is unlikely to listen on Giancarlo Stanton trade offers this winter.
That source did say, however, that it probably is "a trade for a later date." Miami badly needs to upgrade its starting rotation this offseason and there aren't many good options available on the open market, so some crafty dealing is going to be necessary. Sherman suggests the Fish could shop Marcell Ozuna, who had a big bounceback in 2016. Adeiny Hechavarria and Dee Gordon are some other possible trade chips. Stanton is still owed $308.5 million and he's now the unrivaled face of the Marlins franchise following the death of Jose Fernandez. Nov 7 - 9:20 AM

Giancarlo Stanton is absent from the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

Stanton hasn't started a game since Wednesday, as the Marlins see no reason to push him with his injured groin since they've been eliminated from playoff contention. Destin Hood is in right field. The Marlins are also resting J.T. Realmuto and Marcell Ozuna, as Tomas Telis is catching and Xavier Scruggs is in left field.

Giancarlo Stanton is back in the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday versus the Braves.

He will start in right field and bat fifth against right-hander Josh Collmenter. Stanton has been in and out of the starting lineup since returning September 6 from a Grade 3 groin strain. He has also yet to play a full nine innings and will probably be pulled early again on Thursday, but the towering slugger is obviously capable of big things while he's in there.

Giancarlo Stanton is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Nationals.

Stanton has homered in two straight games, but he's still not able to play a full nine innings as he works his way back from a Grade 3 groin strain. The big slugger will be available off the bench Wednesday, with Ichiro Suzuki drawing the start in right field.
Sep 21 - 2:22 PM

Giancarlo Stanton homered for the second straight game Tuesday, launching a solo shot for the Marlins' lone run in a win over the Nationals.

Stanton returned to the lineup last Friday but has only played three of five contests since then, and no full games. However, he's still managed to make an impact with a couple homers and four walks. Stanton was lifted after six innings Tuesday and it's unclear when or if he'll be allowed to play a full nine innings down the stretch, but the 26-year-old slugger still looks capable of helping out fantasy owners.
Sep 20 - 9:28 PM

Giancarlo Stanton is in the Marlins' lineup again Tuesday against the Nationals.

This will be his first time in the lineup for back-to-back days since returning from his groin injury. Stanton slugged a long homer on Monday and is capable of being a difference-maker for those fantasy owners who have been patient.
Sep 20 - 2:29 PM

Giancarlo Stanton slugged a long solo home run in Monday's victory over the Nationals.

Stanton's blast off of A.J. Cole in the second inning went through the Budweiser sign at the top of the concourse over the left-center field wall and was estimated at 466 feet. The slugger also drew a walk in the sixth inning and was then pinch-run for, as he's still unable to play a full game as he works his way back from a serious groin strain.
Sep 19 - 10:15 PM

Giancarlo Stanton is back in the Marlins' starting lineup on Monday versus the Nationals.

Stanton started and played five innings of right field on Friday night against the Phillies, but he was relegated back to pinch-hitting duties on Saturday and Sunday. The big slugger probably won't be an everyday player this week either as he works his way back from a Grade 3 groin strain. He is starting in right and batting fifth Monday against Nats right-hander A.J. Cole.
Sep 19 - 2:53 PM

Giancarlo Stanton is not in the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

Stanton returned to right field for five and a half innings Friday but has now sat out two straight. It doesn't appear he's had a setback with his strained groin, so this appears to be part of the Marlins' plan to ease the outfielder back into things. Marcell Ozuna is in right field Sunday, with Derek Dietrich covering left.
Sep 18 - 11:05 AM

Giancarlo Stanton is not in the Marlins starting lineup on Saturday.

Stanton returned to the lineup for the first time on Friday against the Phillies, but it appears as though the club is going to ease him back into action. He should be available off the bench on Saturday.
Sep 17 - 3:53 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in his return to the starting lineup Friday against the Phillies.

Stanton was activated from the disabled list as a pinch-hitter last week, but this was his first game in right field since his groin injury on August 13. He was pulled from the game in the sixth inning, but that was all part of the plan. The Marlins didn’t want to push him too soon.
Sep 17 - 12:16 AM

Giancarlo Stanton (groin) is back in the Marlins' lineup Friday.

Stanton had been limited to pinch-hitting duty to this point after being activated over a week ago. He's only expected to play 6-7 innings Friday as the Marlins ease him back into things. The slugger is batting second and playing right field.
Sep 16 - 2:32 PM

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Giancarlo Stanton (groin) could be ready to return to the starting lineup for Friday's series opener against the Phillies.

Stanton has been limited to pinch-hitting duties since his activation off the disabled list September 6, but he's also been running on the side in anticipation of returning to the outfield for the final couple weeks of the 2016 regular season. "We're close to getting Giancarlo back," Mattingly said late Wednesday. "We're hoping he can play Friday. We were missing that for about 45 days and that hurt us." Stanton suffered a Grade 3 groin strain in early August and was initially thought to be done for the year.
Sep 15 - 12:47 AM

Giancarlo Stanton remains out of the Marlins' starting lineup on Monday against the Braves.

Stanton has been limited to pinch-hitting duties since coming off the disabled list September 6 and it's not clear when he might get a shot at playing the outfield. He suffered a Grade 3 groin strain on August 13. That type of injury usually requires at least six weeks of rest and rehab.
Sep 12 - 2:56 PM

Marlins activated OF Giancarlo Stanton from the 15-day disabled list.

This comes as a massive surprise, as Stanton was essentially ruled out for the remainder of the 2016 regular season when he went down with a Grade 3 groin strain on August 13. He'll work as a pinch-hitter for now but could return to the starting lineup by the weekend if those at-bats go well. Call it a desperation play from the Wild Card-hunting Marlins.
