Giancarlo Stanton singled twice, stole a base, and scored a run in the Marlins' win over the Giants on Wednesday.

But he was held without a home run for the first time in seven games. What a bum. Stanton, 27, is slashing .287/.378/.645 with an MLB-leading 44 homers and 94 RBI in 439 at-bats this season.

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports hears the Marlins are "willing to engage with other teams" on a possible Giancarlo Stanton trade.

Stanton cleared revocable waivers on Sunday, so he's eligible to be dealt to any club -- assuming he would not exercise his full no-trade protection. Miami's asking price is probably sky high even with Stanton owed more than $285 million on a mega-contract that runs through 2027. The 27-year-old slugger is batting .285/.376/.646 with a league-leading 44 home runs and 94 RBI in 116 games this season.

Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 with yet another homer and a walk Tuesday against the Giants.

Stanton has homers in six straight games. He has 11 homers in 12 games. He has 22 homers in 35 games. He has 44 homers in 116 games. He has 252 homers in 943 games.

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton cleared revocable waivers on Sunday.

It's not a big surprise given his massive contract (10 years and $295 million). And teams regularly place their players on waivers in August, so it's important to not look too much into things. However, now that Stanton has cleared waivers, he's eligible to be traded to any team this month. According to Passan, at least four teams have inquired on Stanton and talks with one team before the July 31 deadline progressed to the point where names were exchanged. With uncertainty over the team's ownership situation, nothing ultimately came of it. At the very least, the Marlins can lay the groundwork to possible discussions for the offseason.

Giancarlo Stanton hit his 43rd home run, setting a new single-season franchise record, in the Marlins' 8-3 defeat of the Giants on Monday.

Stanton passed Gary Sheffield (42 HR, 1996) with his two-run blast off Giants starter Ty Blach in the bottom of the first inning. The big slugger also hit an RBI single in the bottom of the fourth and drew an intentional walk in the bottom of the sixth, finishing 2-for-4 with three runs batted in. He has 22 home runs and 43 RBI over his last 34 games.

Giancarlo Stanton hit his 250th career home run Sunday in the Marlins' 5-3 win over the Rockies.

Stanton is up to 42 homers now. Exactly half have come in his last 33 games (it took him 81 games to get the first 21). What was shaping up as a moderately disappointing season now looks like it'll probably be his best to date.

Giancarlo Stanton homered in his third straight game Saturday, driving in three to lead the Marlins past the Rockies 4-3.

Stanton finished 3-for-4 with two runs scored and the three-run homer in the fourth inning. There aren't enough superlatives to describe the month the 27-year-old is putting together, as he's now got eight homers, 16 RBI and 12 runs scored in 11 August games. His 41 homers on the year lead the league, and he's fourth in both RBI (89) and runs scored (87). Stanton is batting .281/.372/.631 overall.

Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 and hit a solo home run during a 6-3 win over the Rockies on Friday.

His sixth-inning blast off starter Jon Gray made him the first to reach 40 home runs this year. The 27-year-old slugger is on pace to blow away his career highs across the board (except for steals). He has a .277 batting average with 85 RBI and 84 runs scored in 112 games. Fantasy owners have wondered for years what Stanton could do if he ever stayed healthy for a full season. This could be the year we find out and all indications point to some monster stat totals by season's end.

A source told the Miami Herald that the Marlins will be sold to a group led by Bruce Sherman and Derek Jeter for $1.2 billion.

Jeffrey Loria was hoping for about a half-billion more, but the bidding war never really materialized. The biggest portion of the money here will come from Sherman, a New York-based venture capitalist. Jeter is reportedly putting up just $25 million, but he's expected to have a big role in running things.

Giancarlo Stanton hit a two-run home run, his 39th of the year, in Thursday's loss to the Nationals.

Stanton absolutely murdered a Tanner Roark pitch in the third inning, hitting it deep into the Washington night. It was his only hit in four at-bats on the night. Stanton now has six homers in his last seven games and leads the league with his 39 jacks on the year. When all is said and done, it'll likely be a career year on a lot of fronts for the 27-year-old.
Aug 10 - 11:18 PM

Giancarlo Stanton blasted his league-leading 38th home run on Tuesday as the Marlins topped the Nationals 7-3.

His three-run shot off of A.J. Cole in the fifth inning gave the Marlins a lead that they wouldn't relinquish. He also drew a walk in the contest, finishing the night 1-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. The 27-year-old is having perhaps his finest season as a pro, slashing .277/.370/.615 with 38 homers and 83 RBI.

Giancarlo Stanton hit his league-leading 36th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Braves.

Stanton actually drove in both of the Marlins' runs on the evening, walloping the solo homer in the sixth inning before knocking an RBI double in the eighth. He's currently sixth in the NL with 79 RBI and fourth in the league with 79 runs scored, on top of leading all batters, regardless of league, with his 36 jacks. He's also posting a pretty decent .277/.370/.610 slash line to boot. Not bad at all.
