Giancarlo Stanton (hand) will resume a hitting program in a couple of weeks.
Stanton wasn't able to make it back after having surgery in June to remove the hamate bone from his left hand. He's been shut down from swinging since September but is ready to begin a hitting progression again. As long as he doesn't have a setback, the slugger should be fine well before spring training.

Nevin, who is currently the manager at Triple-A Reno in the Diamondbacks' organization, has been courted by the Nationals, Padres and Mariners for their managerial openings, as well. It appears he's one of the favorites for the Marlins' job, although many think the gig could go to Don Mattingly if the Dodgers choose not to retain him.

The Marlins will move in and shorten the height of the fences at Marlins Park before the 2016 season.

There had been rumors that they were considering a change and now the decision is official. The club still intends for Marlins Park to be pitcher-friendly, but president David Samson wants "to make it more fair." It's obviously good news for Marlins hitters, especially for a slugger like Giancarlo Stanton.

The Marlins announced Tuesday that Dan Jennings will not return as manager for 2016.

Given that the Marlins have already begun a search for a new manager, this announcement was inevitable. Jennings was asked to return as general manager, but it's unclear whether he will stick around. The Marlins went 55-69 after Jennings took over for Mike Redmond in May.

Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports that the Marlins plan to interview Phillies bench coach Larry Bowa for their managerial opening.

He tallied 27 homers and 67 RBI in only 74 games this year.

Marlins interim manager Dan Jennings said Saturday that the club is "getting close to that yea or nay date" when it comes to whether Giancarlo Stanton (hand) will return.

A decision figures to be revealed Sunday or Monday, as Jennings said that Stanton probably wouldn't travel on the season-ending road trip beginning Tuesday if it's determined he should shut it down. The club is leaving it up to Stanton as to whether he'll come back during the final week. "There still scar tissue and it's strength. It's the same two issues… We have left it in his court," Jennings said. At this point, it would be a surprise if Stanton returns. He's been out since late June following surgery to remove the hamate bone from his left hand.
Sep 27 - 10:52 AM's Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins "have already engaged in discussions" with Dusty Baker about their manager position.

Frisaro is unsure when the discussions took place but says "this process has been ongoing." He reported previously that the former Giants, Cubs and Reds skipper is a "very strong candidate" for the gig. Former Nationals and Indians manager Manny Acta has also interviewed for the job, but it appears Baker might be the favorite at the moment.

Giancarlo Stanton's has had his return to the Marlins put on hold again due to an abnormal amount of scar tissue in his hand.

The slugger has been doing everything in his power to try to make it back on the field before the end of the season, but you have to wonder if it's in everyone's best interest to simply shut him down for the remainder of the season. Stanton has been sidelined since late June following surgery to remove the hamate bone from his left hand.

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) will to see a specialist on Tuesday for a final checkup.

Stanton took batting practice Monday and a date for his return could be known after he sees the specialist. "He is going to get a second opinion," Marlins manager Dan Jennings said.

Stanton has been out since late June following surgery to remove the hamate bone from his left hand.

Stanton took batting practice on Monday, the first time he's done so on the field with the team since he had surgery in late June to remove the hamate bone from his left hand. Him traveling on the Marlins' road trip is a good sign and Joe Frisaro of thinks the "best-case scenario" is a return for the weekend series in Washington. Things appear to finally be trending in the right direction after some talk that Stanton might not make it back this season. "He's feeling much better," manager Dan Jennings said. "It's good to see him on this road trip. I know where his mindset is. Now, there is just a comfort level of strength. When he gets to that, he will be ready to go. When that is, we're not sure. But I think it's progressing the right way."

Stanton has been sidelined since late June.
