Giancarlo Stanton stroked a go-ahead RBI single in the bottom of the eighth inning as the Marlins rallied to beat the Nationals 2-1 on Wednesday.
Miami went hitless against Max Scherzer for the first seven innings of the game, but A.J. Ellis reached on an infield single with one out in the bottom of the eighth and pinch-runner Jose Urena would come around to score on a wild pitch that followed an Adam Lind error and a Dee Gordon HBP. Stanton then put the Fish ahead for good with a liner into left field. The 27-year-old slugger has managed to stay clear of the disabled list in 2017 and boasts a .276/.356/.540 batting line with 18 home runs and 47 RBI. Jun 21 - 3:25 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-5 and hit his 18th homer Monday versus the Nationals.

Stanton isn't even the high Marlins outfielder in the NL All-Star balloting, that because of Marcell Ozuna's strong first half to date. Hopefully, one of the two gets to start alongside Bryce Harper and Charlie Blackmon. Right now, Jason Heyward is in that position.

Giancarlo Stanton hit his 17th homer and walked Tuesday against the A's.

In part because of injuries, Stanton's career high for homers is 37. He's on pace for 44 right now, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him exceed that number if he can play in 155 games. He's played 62 out of 63 so far.

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) is back in the Marlins' lineup Tuesday.

Stanton sat out Sunday after leaving Saturday's game following a hit by pitch on his right hand, but he's ready to go after Monday's off day. He's in right field and batting second versus Jharel Cotton and the A's.
Jun 13 - 2:42 PM

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) is expected back in the Marlins' lineup Tuesday following Monday's off day.

Stanton is not starting Sunday after exiting Saturday's contest with a bruised right hand. However, he's feeling better and could be available to pinch-hit Sunday before returning to the lineup Tuesday.

Giancarlo Stanton (hand) is not in the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

Stanton had to leave Saturday's game after being hit on the right hand by a pitch. X-rays came back clean, but he's still sore. Ichiro Suzuki is in right field. Dee Gordon is getting a day off, as the Fish have Christian Colon at second base.

Updating an earlier report, Giancarlo Stanton left Saturday's game against the Pirates with a bruised right hand.

His X-rays came back negative. It's great news for the Marlins and anyone who owns Stanton in fantasy, though he's not out of the woods just yet. Stanton will likely need a day or two for the swelling to go down, casting doubt on his status for Sunday's series finale. Ichiro Suzuki replaced Stanton in right field on Saturday and would likely get the nod again Sunday if Stanton can't go.
Jun 10 - 5:19 PM

Giancarlo Stanton left Saturday's game against the Pirates after taking a pitch off his right hand.

Pirates starter Trevor Williams drilled him with a 95.3 mph fastball in the first inning. Ichiro Suzuki pinch-ran for Stanton and late replaced him in right field. Stanton has had an unbelievable year so far, slashing .288..367/.566 with 16 homers and 42 RBI. Obviously this would be a huge loss for the Marlins.
Jun 10 - 4:36 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-3 with a solo homer, a walk, and three runs scored against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

With Stanton’s solo shot in the fifth inning, he passed Mike Lowell for first on the Marlins’ all-time list with his 579th RBI. The 27-year-old had a minor hamstring issue earlier this week, but he has managed to stay healthy this season while batting .289 with 15 home runs and a .926 OPS.
Jun 2 - 11:59 PM

Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) is back in the Marlins' starting lineup on Thursday night.

Stanton made an early exit Tuesday and was held out of action Wednesday due to mild hamstring cramps. He is starting in right field and batting second Thursday versus Diamondbacks right-hander Zack Greinke.
Jun 1 - 3:19 PM

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Giancarlo Stanton is dealing with hamstring cramps.

That explains Stanton's early exit from Tuesday's game and his absence from the lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Phillies, but Mattingly said the big slugger should be able to return to action on Thursday. Stanton hit his 14th home run of the season Tuesday night before departing. Ichiro Suzuki is in right field for Miami on Wednesday.
May 31 - 11:42 AM

Giancarlo Stanton is getting the day off Wednesday against the Phillies.

Ichiro Suzuki will start in right field and bat eighth versus Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola. It's just a routine day of rest for Stanton, who slugged his 14th home run of the year on Tuesday night.
May 31 - 11:02 AM

Giancarlo Stanton hit a two-run homer before taking an early seat Tuesday against the Phillies.

Stanton was lifted with a 7-1 lead after five, but the Marlins said afterwards that it was just a breather and he wasn't hurt. He's up to 14 homers for the year.
May 30 - 10:54 PM

The Associated Press reports that Jeb Bush has ended his pursuit of ownership of the Marlins.

It was reported last month that the Marlins were "moving forward" with an investment group including Bush and Derek Jeter, but that turned out to be preliminary. With Bush walking away, a potential ownership group including Tagg Romney and Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Glavine becomes the front-runner. Derek Jeter was involved in Bush's investment group, but he may now explore a bid with other investors.
May 30 - 3:33 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-5 with a home run in the Marlins' 9-2 defeat of the Angels on Sunday.

Stanton kicked off the game's scoring with a solo blast in the top of the first inning and later added two singles. He finished the game with two runs scored. Stanton has managed to stay healthy through the first two months of the season and is producing as expected, now with an .886 OPS, 13 home runs, and 34 RBI in 48 games. He's currently on pace for 44 homers and 115 RBI.
