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.

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.

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.

Giancarlo Stanton is back in the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday versus the Braves.

He will start in right field and bat fifth against right-hander Josh Collmenter. Stanton has been in and out of the starting lineup since returning September 6 from a Grade 3 groin strain. He has also yet to play a full nine innings and will probably be pulled early again on Thursday, but the towering slugger is obviously capable of big things while he's in there.

Giancarlo Stanton is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Wednesday versus the Nationals.

Stanton has homered in two straight games, but he's still not able to play a full nine innings as he works his way back from a Grade 3 groin strain. The big slugger will be available off the bench Wednesday, with Ichiro Suzuki drawing the start in right field.

Giancarlo Stanton homered for the second straight game Tuesday, launching a solo shot for the Marlins' lone run in a win over the Nationals.

Stanton returned to the lineup last Friday but has only played three of five contests since then, and no full games. However, he's still managed to make an impact with a couple homers and four walks. Stanton was lifted after six innings Tuesday and it's unclear when or if he'll be allowed to play a full nine innings down the stretch, but the 26-year-old slugger still looks capable of helping out fantasy owners.

Giancarlo Stanton is in the Marlins' lineup again Tuesday against the Nationals.

This will be his first time in the lineup for back-to-back days since returning from his groin injury. Stanton slugged a long homer on Monday and is capable of being a difference-maker for those fantasy owners who have been patient.
Tue, Sep 20, 2016 02:29:00 PM

Giancarlo Stanton slugged a long solo home run in Monday's victory over the Nationals.

Stanton's blast off of A.J. Cole in the second inning went through the Budweiser sign at the top of the concourse over the left-center field wall and was estimated at 466 feet. The slugger also drew a walk in the sixth inning and was then pinch-run for, as he's still unable to play a full game as he works his way back from a serious groin strain.

Giancarlo Stanton is back in the Marlins' starting lineup on Monday versus the Nationals.

Stanton started and played five innings of right field on Friday night against the Phillies, but he was relegated back to pinch-hitting duties on Saturday and Sunday. The big slugger probably won't be an everyday player this week either as he works his way back from a Grade 3 groin strain. He is starting in right and batting fifth Monday against Nats right-hander A.J. Cole.

Giancarlo Stanton is not in the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

Stanton returned to right field for five and a half innings Friday but has now sat out two straight. It doesn't appear he's had a setback with his strained groin, so this appears to be part of the Marlins' plan to ease the outfielder back into things. Marcell Ozuna is in right field Sunday, with Derek Dietrich covering left.

Giancarlo Stanton is not in the Marlins starting lineup on Saturday.

Stanton returned to the lineup for the first time on Friday against the Phillies, but it appears as though the club is going to ease him back into action. He should be available off the bench on Saturday.
Sat, Sep 17, 2016 03:53:00 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in his return to the starting lineup Friday against the Phillies.

Stanton was activated from the disabled list as a pinch-hitter last week, but this was his first game in right field since his groin injury on August 13. He was pulled from the game in the sixth inning, but that was all part of the plan. The Marlins didn’t want to push him too soon.
