Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports hears that Giancarlo Stanton (groin) could return for the final week of the regular season if things go "absolutely perfect."
The report backs up what Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said a week ago about Stanton holding out hope for a late-season return. It's certainly good news for the club, although it's just speculation at this point with Stanton still shut down from baseball activities. The slugger suffered a Grade 3 groin strain two weeks ago.

Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said Sunday that Giancarlo Stanton (groin) plans to return to the Marlins before the end of the regular season.

Stanton was diagnosed with a grade 3 groin strain in mid-August, and was expected to miss at least six weeks. If he comes in at the low end of that range, he could return in the final week of the season, where he hopes to help push the Marlins into the postseason. It should still be considered a long shot, but perhaps the Marlins' star slugger isn't quite finished for 2016.
Aug 21 - 7:06 PM

Marlins manager Don Mattingly announced Sunday that Giancarlo Stanton (groin) will miss the remainder of the 2016 season.

Mattingly indicated that the MRI revealed a very serious groin injury. Stanton suffered the injury on Saturday when trying to stretch a single into a double on the final play of the ballgame. It's a very tough blow to the Marlins, who continue to battle for a playoff spot in the National League.
Aug 14 - 4:18 PM

Marlins placed OF Giancarlo Stanton on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain.

Stanton was hurt on Saturday when he tried to stretch a single into a double on the final play of the game. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but obviously it's a massive blow to a team with playoff aspirations.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Marlins are expected to place Giancarlo Stanton (groin) on the disabled list.

Stanton suffered a groin injury while trying to stretch a single into a double on the game's final out Saturday against the White Sox. He's also dealt with a hip ailment recently, although it's unclear whether the two injuries are related. The Marlins should provide an update on the outfielder soon, but obviously this isn't good news for their Wild Card hopes.

Giancarlo Stanton is being checked for a groin injury.

Stanton hurt himself while trying to stretch a single into a double on the game's final out Saturday against the White Sox. He went 3-for-5 in the game with a homer and three RBI. Even if it's only a minor injury, there's a good chance the Marlins will play it safe by giving Stanton the day off on Sunday.
Aug 13 - 11:51 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in a loss to the White Sox on Saturday.

Stanton had just five hits in his previous 29 at-bats coming into the game, and he'd also dealt with hip discomfort in recent days, so it was good to see the three-hit night from the 26-year-old. Stanton now has 25 homers and 70 RBI overall. His .244 average leaves something to be desired, but Stanton owns an .826 OPS in 103 games.
Aug 13 - 10:50 PM

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

Stanton missed one start with some minor hip soreness, but he's fine. He's in right field and batting cleanup against Carlos Rodon and the White Sox.
Aug 12 - 2:43 PM

Giancarlo Stanton (hip) flied out to center field as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday.

Stanton was held out of the Marlins' starting lineup as a scheduled day of maintenance, and also because he's been dealing with some minor hip discomfort. The big slugger is expected to return to the lineup for Friday night's series opener against the White Sox following Thursday's team off day.
Aug 11 - 8:34 AM

Giancarlo Stanton (hip) is out of the Marlins' lineup on Wednesday against the Giants.

Stanton made an early exit Tuesday via a double-switch after complaining of some minor soreness in his hip. He was already scheduled for a day off in Wednesday afternoon's series finale against the Giants and will aim to return for Friday night's series opener versus the White Sox. Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and batting sixth Wednesday against San Francisco right-hander Jeff Samardzija.

Giancarlo Stanton is dealing with some minor hip soreness.

It's partly why he was double-switched out of Tuesday night's 2-0 win over the Giants. Stanton won't start Wednesday afternoon's series finale, but that was already a scheduled day off. The big slugger should return to the lineup for Friday night's series opener against the White Sox.
Aug 9 - 10:36 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-3 with two RBI and crushed a very impressive solo home run deep into the night on Saturday.

The home run traveled an estimated 495 feet to left-center. He drove in another run with a fielder's choice grounder. Stanton endured a prolonged slump in May and June but has been back to his stellar self for a few weeks now. He has a .242 batting average with 23 home runs, 63 RBI and 50 runs scored overall.
Aug 6 - 11:53 PM

Giancarlo Stanton slugged his 22nd home run of the season Wednesday versus the Phillies.

It was a two-run blast in the bottom of the first inning off Phillies starter Zach Eflin. Stanton also managed a single in the 11-1 rout, finishing the day 2-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI. He seems to have survived the Home Run Derby.
Jul 27 - 3:19 PM

Giancarlo Stanton broke out of a miniature slump in a big way Saturday, finishing 4-for-5 with a home run and three RBI to lead the Marlins past the Mets 7-2.

Stanton connected for a two-run home run in the third inning, later adding an RBI single. The big night broke a 6-for-27 (.222) stretch dating back to last week's All-Star break. The homer was his 21st of the season. The 26-year-old is hitting .241/.334/.495 with 55 RBI and 44 runs scored on the year.
Jul 24 - 12:13 AM

Giancarlo Stanton is not in the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday night against the Phillies.

Ichiro Suzuki will start in right field and bat leadoff versus Philadelphia right-hander Jerad Eickhoff. Stanton is 1-for-12 (.083) so far in this four-game series. He had been on an offensive tear. Daily Slant: With Stanton out of the lineup, the Marlins will be missing their most potent bat, not to mention that typical leadoff man J.T. Realmuto will also get a night off. This is now a much improved spot for Jerad Eickhoff, who generally pitches well at home (.281 wOBA allowed, career 18.4 K-BB% with a 9.1 HR/FB rate). He also owns a 22.0 K% at home which is the highest mark among pitchers taking the hill tonight. Adam Wainwright and Steven Wright are still safer cash game targets, but Eickhoff is a perfectly suitable tournament target at a lower price tag.
