Giancarlo Stanton is not in the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday night against the Phillies.

Ichiro Suzuki will start in right field and bat leadoff versus Philadelphia right-hander Jerad Eickhoff. Stanton is 1-for-12 (.083) so far in this four-game series. He had been on an offensive tear.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Stanton out of the lineup, the Marlins will be missing their most potent bat, not to mention that typical leadoff man J.T. Realmuto will also get a night off. This is now a much improved spot for Jerad Eickhoff, who generally pitches well at home (.281 wOBA allowed, career 18.4 K-BB% with a 9.1 HR/FB rate). He also owns a 22.0 K% at home which is the highest mark among pitchers taking the hill tonight. Adam Wainwright and Steven Wright are still safer cash game targets, but Eickhoff is a perfectly suitable tournament target at a lower price tag.

Giancarlo Stanton continued his rebound, finishing 2-for-3 with a run and RBI on Friday.

He also drew a walk. Stanton has really struggled to hit for average this year. Today's game lifts his line to .238/.335/.500 with 20 home runs, 41 runs and 51 RBI. Everyone knows he has super-human power but his owners need him to improve his batting average if he is going to be a fantasy star.

Giancarlo Stanton defeated Todd Frazier in the finals to win the 2016 Home Run Derby.

Neither Stanton nor Frazier are All-Stars, but they made the trip to San Diego and put on a heck of a show.

The Marlins' outfielder launched 24 homers in the first round to defeat Robinson Cano before getting past Mark Trumbo in the semi-finals with 17 homers. Frazier, the defending champion, made his way to the finals by defeating Carlos Gonzalez in the first round and Adam Duvall in the semi-finals. Stanton outslugged Frazier 20-13 in the finals to take the crown.

Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Reds.

Stanton clocked a two-run shot off Reds starter Cody Reed in the fifth inning. That brought the slugger's season-total to an even 20. In addition to those 20 taters, Stanton is slashing .233/.328/.495 and has driven in 50 runs. That is a relatively quiet triple-slash by his lofty standards, but Stanton has notched hits in seven straight contests -- hopefully a sign that his bat can find more consistency outside of the pure power when he hits the second half of the season.

Giancarlo Stanton homered twice Wednesday in the Marlins' loss to the Mets.

Stanton hit a monster drive to left-center in the top of the fourth inning and then went even longer with a bomb to the top deck in the sixth. Both homers came off Jacob deGrom, but they were solo shots and New York won the game 4-2. Stanton has tallied four home runs in under 24 hours and finally appears to be coming alive after a sluggish May and June.

Giancarlo Stanton had a big night Tuesday, going 3-for-5 with a pair of homers and five RBI in a win over the Mets.

He drove in all five of the Marlins' runs, hitting a laser over the left-center field wall in the seventh for a two-run shot and then a towering bomb to the second deck in left-center in the eighth. It's the slugger's first two-homer game of 2016, pushing his total for the year to 17 bombs. His first half has no doubt been disappointing, but Stanton is as capable as anyone of hitting homers in bunches.
