Giancarlo Stanton went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Marlins.

Stanton came into the game on a power tear, with four home runs in his last seven games, but Jordan Zimmerman and company shut the slugger down on Friday. Stanton is slashing .226/.342/.484 and has hit four home runs with 14 RBI and nine runs scored through the first three weeks of the 2015 season. He remains one of the top offensive threats in the game and the low average figures to rise as the weather warms.

Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in a win versus the Phillies on Thursday.

Stanton ripped a Justin De Fratus offering over the fence in left field at Citizens Bank Park to put the cherry on a four-run sixth inning for the Marlins. Stanton now has four home runs, all of them occurring within his last seven games. On the season, he's hitting .241/.362/.517 with 14 RBI.
Apr 23 - 4:06 PM

Giancarlo Stanton finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a losing effort against the Phillies on Tuesday.

Stanton hit a monster home run -- measured at 450 feet -- to right-center field at Citizens Bank Park in the fourth inning off of Jerome Williams. After a slow start to the season, Stanton has started to heat up, homering in three out of his last five games. He carries a .260/.373/.520 triple-slash line with 12 RBI.
Apr 21 - 9:44 PM

Giancarlo Stanton launched a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Mets.

It was the only offense of the game for the Marlins. Stanton failed to homer in his first nine games this season, but he has now gone deep on back-to-back days. He likely would have led the majors in homers if his 2014 didn't come to a premature end and it's easy to imagine him at the top of the leaderboard this season.
Apr 17 - 10:27 PM

Giancarlo Stanton found the power stroke Thursday, delivering a homer and a double against the Mets.

Stanton was without a homer in nine games this season, but he's now homered in four straight games against the Mets. He also drew a walk tonight.
Apr 16 - 10:27 PM

Giancarlo Stanton broke out of a slump in a big way Tuesday, going 3-for-3 with four RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in the Marlins' 8-2 win over the Braves.

Stanton reached base five times, walking twice to go along with two singles and a double. Stanton had an RBI single in the first and third innings before swatting a two-run double in the eighth. He had been hitless in his previous 12 at-bats before the big game. Stanton is too good to be kept under wraps for too long, so perhaps this is the start of a torrid stretch for the 25-year-old.
Apr 14 - 10:17 PM

Giancarlo Stanton, for the third consecutive game, finished 0-for-4 in Monday's loss to the Braves.

Stanton is not starting off the 2015 season in good shape, as he's hitting just .130 (3-for-23) with no home runs. Seven games is quite a small sample, however, so we're not worried yet. The good news is he's at least drawing walks, with five of them in 29 plate appearances.
Apr 13 - 11:58 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Rays.

Miami only managed two total hits in the game, so it wasn't just Stanton who struggled. The 25-year-old slugger is 3-for-15 (.200) with zero home runs through five games this season, but it's obviously way too early to panic. He's drawn five walks and currently sports an impressive .429 on-base percentage.
Apr 11 - 6:45 PM

Giancarlo Stanton drove in three runs Friday against the Rays.

Stanton went 2-for-3 with a walk, a run scored, and a stolen base. He had a two-run double in the bottom of the fourth inning before adding an RBI single in the eighth. The 25-year-old hasn't homered yet, but he's batting .273 with a .529 on-base percentage through four games.
Apr 10 - 11:07 PM

Giancarlo Stanton had an RBI double in Saturday's spring tilt with the Triple-A Suns.

Stanton finished spring ball hitting .313/.393/.688. Sounds about right. The outfielder is a fantasy monster and should be one of the top players in the game this season. At just 25 years old, we probably have yet to see the best of the Marlins' star. Stanton hit 37 home runs last season.
Apr 4 - 8:13 PM

Giancarlo Stanton had a two-run homer and a double as the Marlins shut out the Nationals 8-0 on Wednesday.

Stanton has four homers, three of them coming in his last five games. He's up to .313/.393/.688 in 48 at-bats for the spring. There should no longer be any concern about how he'd react after last season's beaning.
Apr 1 - 4:05 PM

Giancarlo Stanton delivered a homer and a double off Adam Wainwright as the Marlins beat the Cardinals 5-3 on Sunday.

Some were nervous about how Stanton would fare after having his season ended by a beanball last September, but he isn't showing any fear at the plate. He's currently batting .294 with two homers and four doubles in 34 at-bats.
Mar 26 - 5:46 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-3 with his first homer and a double Wednesday to lead the Marlins to a 5-4 win over the Nationals.

Stanton had been 3-for-18 this spring. His March performance is more notable than it might otherwise be, given that he's coming off a season-ending beaning that left him with facial fractures. It doesn't appear that he's changed his approach at all, though.
Mar 18 - 4:27 PM

Giancarlo Stanton (face) is not in the Marlins' starting lineup for Tuesday's exhibition game against the Miami Hurricanes.

Stanton was hit in the hip during an intrasquad game over the weekend, but he was only grazed. The Marlins are just taking it easy with Stanton early on. He'll be back in the lineup on Thursday when the Marlins open Grapefruit League action against the Cardinals. Stanton was hit in the face with a fastball in September last season, requiring surgery. He will be wearing a new, more protective helmet and should still be counted on for elite fantasy numbers as he begins a record 13-year, $325 million contract signed in November.
