Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins are "moving forward" with an investment group including Jeb Bush and Derek Jeter to purchase the team.
This confirms a report from Scott Soshnick of Bloomberg. Jackson hears that there's an "agreement in principle" for the Jeb/Jeter group to purchase the team from Jeffrey Loria, with the price tag at $1.3 billion. Bush is expected to be the control person, according to Jackson, but more than five investors are involved and Jeter is expected to have an active role. Of course, any sale will need to be approved by MLB's other owners. Loria originally purchased the Marlins for $158.5 million in 2002. Apr 25 - 2:59 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Padres.

Stanton has been in the zone of late, having collected multiple hits in three of his last four games. Two of those three multi-hit showings were of the three-hit variety. In that same four-game space, Stanton has slugged four home runs. All of this scalding work has helped to boost his batting line to .300/.367/.614 to pair with seven home runs and 15 RBI across an even 70 at-bats.

Giancarlo Stanton finished 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Saturday's extra-innings win in San Diego.

Stanton swatted a two-run shot off Miguel Diaz to send the home crowd at Petco Park home with frowns. The slugger is in a groove right now, belting four homers with six RBI over his past three outings while delivering at least one souvenir in each of the contests. Stanton is locked in and making his fantasy owners very happy after a bit of a slow start.

Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Mariners.

Stanton crushed a Felix Hernandez offering an estimated 445 feet to lead off the third inning. The dinger was his fourth of the season. In addition, the slugger is slashing .268/.354/.500 and has driven in nine runs over the course of 56 at-bats.
Apr 19 - 8:05 PM

Giancarlo Stanton swatted a solo home run for his only hit in four at-bats Saturday against the Mets.

Stanton's homer off reliever Fernando Salas proved to be the game winner. He has swatted all three of his homers with six of his season's eight RBI over the past four games. He'll look to stay hot against Matt Harvey on Sunday. However, the Mets pitcher has gotten the best of Stanton in their brief dealings, striking out Stanton eight times in 15 at-bats with just two singles allowed.
Apr 15 - 11:12 PM

Giancarlo Stanton drilled a pair of two-run home runs in a loss to the Braves on Wednesday.

They were the slugger's first two longballs of the season. He accounted for all of his team's runs by going deep off veteran left-hander Jaime Garcia in the third and fifth innings with a runner aboard each time. He also drew a walk in the game to lift his line to .290/.371/.516 in 34 at-bats. Stanton should be one of the most productive power hitters in the game as long as he can stay healthy, which has been a problem for him throughout his career.
Apr 12 - 11:48 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-4 with an RBI single in a win over the Mets on Saturday.

The good news: Stanton now has seven hits and two RBI in 21 at-bats. The bad news: just one of those hits has gone for extra bases, and it was a double. While still looking for his first jack, it's encouraging that the 27-year-old is hitting for average, something he hasn't really done with any consistency in recent years. We know the power is still there, and that first homer should come any day now.
Apr 8 - 10:41 PM

Giancarlo Stanton smacked an RBI double in Monday’s loss to the Nationals.

Stanton went 1-for-4 on the afternoon. His fourth-inning double was a laser to the warning track in center field. Stanton is in a league of his own as far as exit velocity and raw power, but the Marlins are going to be hard-pressed to go anywhere he can’t stay healthy. He has averaged just 115 games over the past five seasons.
Apr 3 - 4:07 PM

Giancarlo Stanton homered off Dallas Keuchel and walked Tuesday against the Astros.

It doesn't quite seem like Stanton has found his swing yet, but he hasn't been all that bad, either. He is 6-for-26 with a couple of homers in Marlins camp. He was 5-for-22 with one homer for Team USA in the WBC. Fortunately, he hasn't complained of any physical issues, and there's nothing to suggest he'll need frequent off days during the regular season.
Mar 28 - 5:10 PM

Giancarlo Stanton rocketed a two-run homer and added a single and two runs scored in the United States' 6-3 World Baseball Classic win over the Dominican Republic on Saturday.

Stanton singled to lead off the third inning and came around to score the United States' first run, but it was his home run in the fourth that dropped jaws. The slugger hit a screamer over the left field wall and off the Western Metal Supply Co. Building at Petco Park that exited the yard in the blink of an eye. The dinger had an exit velocity of 117.3 mph, which was the fourth-hardest hit home run of the Statcast era. The United States has moved on the semifinals and will play Japan on Tuesday. The Netherlands and undefeated Puerto Rico will square off in the other semifinal contest.
Mar 19 - 8:38 AM

Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-3 and hit his first homer of the spring Monday against the Mets.

Stanton had been 1-for-14. He's about to head off to play for Team USA, so it's encouraging to see him heat up a little bit ahead of time. Typically a strong spring performer, he's finished with OPSs between .912 and 1.153 over the last four Grapefruit League campaigns.
Mar 6 - 4:58 PM

According to Forbes, Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has a $1.6 billion "handshake agreement" to sell the team.

There were reports earlier this winter that Loria was shopping the franchise, and it sounds like he has found an offer to his liking. Forbes says the unnamed buyer is a "real estate developer based in New York." Loria paid just $158 million for the Marlins in 2002 and then opened a new $639 million publicly-financed stadium in 2012. Good things happen to good people? At least Major League Baseball might finally be rid of the guy.

Giancarlo Stanton will play for Team USA in the 2017 World Baseball Classic.

He joins Christian Yelich, Andrew McCutchen, and Adam Jones in a strong outfield for the Americans. Noticeably absent from the March tournament will be Mike Trout and Bryce Harper. Stanton has missed 131 games over the last two seasons due to injuries, but he carries a clean bill of health into 2017. The 27-year-old slugger is owed $299.5 million from the Marlins on a mega-contract that runs through 2027.
Jan 24 - 11:05 PM

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.

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.
