Giancarlo Stanton (hand) won't be cleared to resume his rehab assignment with High-A Jupiter Wednesday until he swings a bat before the game.
Stanton admitted that his surgically-repaired left hand felt "not 100 percent" during his first rehab game on Tuesday. The Marlins had been hoping he'd be ready for activation on Friday, but that's looking like a long shot at this point. More information should be available on Stanton later Wednesday.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Marlins will ask Dan Jennings to step down as manager and resume his role as general manager after the season.

Rosenthal says the club would then pursue an experienced manager over the winter. The Marlins fired Mike Redmond after he got off to a 16-22 (.421) start this season. They've gone 38-57 (.400) so far under Jennings.

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) said he felt "not 100 percent" during his first rehab game with High-A Jupiter on Tuesday and is not expected to be activated on Friday as hoped.

Well, that's a bummer. Stanton's progress from surgery to remove the hamate bone in his left hand has been slow, but it had appeared he turned a corner. However, clearly he's still not ready to return to the majors just yet. His fantasy owners will have to continue to wait.
Sep 1 - 8:18 PM

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) has been cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment and is targeting a return to the Marlins lineup on Friday.

Stanton has been on the shelf since late June after fracturing the hamate bone in his left hand. That type of injury has been known to sap a player's power in the past, so those hoping that he'll immediately return to the player that he was pre-injury may need to curb their optimism.

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) is expected to face live pitching in batting practice next Monday.

Progress has been slow for Stanton, who has been sidelined since late June with a fractured hamate bone in his left hand. However, he finally appears to be headed in the right direction. The hope is that he could finally be back in the Marlins lineup by the end of next week.

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) expects to be back with the Marlins in about a week and a half.

The estimate needs to be taken with a grain of salt. Stanton previously said that he hoped to be back by September 1, but he recently had to skip a day of hitting live pitching due to pain in his wrist. Still, he appears determined to return in September and go into the offseason with some peace of mind.

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) had to skip a day of hitting against live pitching this week due to ongoing pain.

It's not an encouraging development, although Stanton is still hoping to be activated from the disabled list around September 1. "It's just wrist weakness. Not the actual surgical part; the impact on my incision area is fine. It's the weakness in my wrist in turning over," Stanton said. "It's a little different than [with a] muscle; at 75 percent of a muscle you can jog and still do some functional things. But I need 100 percent of my wrist. I can't go up and [face] 95 miles per hour and just have 75 percent of my wrist. I need all of that to turn it over."

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) hopes to be back with the Marlins by September 1.

Stanton hit off a pitching machine and against live pitching on Monday, but he's still feeling some minor discomfort in his hand, so it's unclear when he'll be ready for game action. The 25-year-old has missed almost two months following hamate bone surgery.

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) hit off a pitching machine and against live pitching on Monday.

Stanton's recovery from hamate bone surgery has progressed very slowly, but it appears he's finally taken a step forward. "He's in a hitting progression," Marlins manager Dan Jennings said. "He'll start to hit off the machine and live batting practice. Then he'll progress into probably a simulation game and one or two rehab games. Time for that is to be determined." As Jennings outlined, there's no timetable for Stanton's return yet, but there looks to be light at the end of the tunnel.
Aug 17 - 8:54 PM

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) has yet to be cleared to take batting practice.

Stanton continues to perform baseball activities, including hitting off a tee, but he still needs to regain strength in his surgically-repaired left hand before he's cleared for BP. The Marlins and fantasy owners expected to have the slugger back by now, but he just hasn't progressed as quickly as hoped from hamate bone surgery. Miami is well out of contention, so they have no reason to rush him.
Aug 12 - 10:11 AM

Giancarlo Stanton admitted Saturday that his recovery from hamate bone surgery is "definitely slower" than expected.

Stanton resumed hitting off a tee recently but conceded that he's still feeling some pain in his left hand. "Getting decent -- the ball's coming off OK," Stanton said. "It's just the pain level of it." The Marlins had been hoping to get the outfielder back sometime in early August, but it sounds like it will be a bit longer. "I have to swing off the tee with no pain first, then we'll go from there," Stanton said. "I don't know when that will be. I'm just doing what I'm supposed to every day."
Aug 2 - 12:00 PM

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

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) has been cleared to take dry swings after visiting a hand specialist on Monday.

The slugger has been sidelined for a little over three weeks following surgery to repair a fractured hamate bone in his left hand. Swinging a bat again is obviously a big step, but Stanton remains at least a couple weeks away from a return to the Marlins' lineup.

Giancarlo Stanton underwent successful surgery on Sunday to repair a fractured hamate bone in his left wrist.

He'll be sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks, which puts his return to the Marlins lineup in early August. Ichiro Suzuki appears to be the most likely beneficiary of additional playing time in his absence.

Marlins placed OF Giancarlo Stanton on the 15-day disabled list with a left wrist hamate fracture.

Stanton will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks with the injury and is expected to return to the Marlins at some point in early August. Look for Ichiro Suzuki to see increased time in the outfield while Stanton is sidelined.
