Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored as the Marlins beat the Cubs 4-2 on Thursday.

Stanton hit a solo homer in the fourth inning and added an RBI single in the eighth. He's been on a tear at the plate in the last week, going 10-for-25 with two homers, three RBI and five runs scored. The good stretch, while not only encouraging for Stanton owners, has raised his overall line to .216/.314/.441.

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

Stanton is batting .170/.241/.283 with 45 strikeouts over his last 106 at-bats. Ichiro Suzuki will start in right field and bat leadoff Wednesday afternoon against Atlanta right-hander John Gant.

Giancarlo Stanton had a rough night at the plate in Tuesday's loss to the Braves, going 0-for-5 with a pair of strikeouts.

Stanton left six men on base in the game. He had been showing signs of life at the plate in recent days, but looked completely helpless against Bud Norris and the Braves bullpen on Tuesday. He's now hitting a disappointing .211/.311/.427 on the season with 13 homers and 32 RBI.

Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 with a home run in Monday's loss to the Rockies.

The home run was Stanton's first in almost a month, as he'd been in a 15-game homerless drought dating back to May 24. It was his 13th home run of the season. Stanton has been showing signs of life in recent days, going 8-for-16 in the four-game series with the Rockies to raise his overall line to .216/.317/.437 in 59 games.
Jun 20 - 11:00 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Rockies.

He's now strung together two solid efforts, going 5-for-8 in the first two games of the series. Less encouraging is the fact that all five have been singles, and Stanton still hasn't homered since missing time in late May with a sore right side. It's hard to believe he's totally healthy, a theory supported by his disappointing .210/.315/.424 line through 57 games.

Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-3 with a two-run single and a walk Friday against the Rockies.

He also struck out, but you have to look at this night as a step in the right direction for him. This was Stanton’s first multi-hit game since June 8. He hadn’t driven in more than one run in a game since May 6. His struggles have been vexing to say the least, but he’s too good to not eventually find his way out of it.

Giancarlo Stanton is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Wednesday against the Padres.

Ichiro Suzuki will start in right field and bat leadoff versus Padres right-hander Luis Perdomo. Stanton is hitting just .194/.303/.418 in 54 games this season.
Jun 15 - 12:37 PM

Giancarlo Stanton is back in the Marlins' lineup Tuesday against the Padres.

Stanton watched last night's game from the dugout and can't seem to break out of his season-long slump. Tuesday he'll hit out of the No. 5 spot against lefty Drew Pomeranz. Stanton has hit .103 this month with 18 strikeouts in 39 at-bats.
Jun 14 - 6:42 PM

Marlins manager Don Mattingly indicated that Giancarlo Stanton's absence from Monday's lineup is not due to injury.

Mattingly referenced Stanton's frustration regarding his lengthy slump, so it appears that he is sitting for a second straight day in order to clear his head. It's unclear if he'll be back in the lineup on Tuesday, but Ichiro Suzuki got another start on Monday as he continues his march toward 3,000 hits in MLB.
Jun 13 - 9:03 PM

Giancarlo Stanton is out of the Marlins' lineup for Monday's game against the Padres.

He's now sitting for the second straight day. It's unclear whether his absence is related to his brutal slump or his recent side issue. Ichiro Suzuki is getting another start in right field and batting leadoff against right-hander Colin Rea.
Jun 13 - 6:17 PM

Giancarlo Stanton is absent from the Marlins' lineup Sunday.

It doesn't appear Stanton has had a setback with his side, so this looks to just be a day of rest. Ichiro Suzuki is in right field and leading off.
Jun 5 - 10:41 AM

Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

Stanton wasn't penciled into the starting lineup at first, but he was a late addition and contributed with the run-scoring double in the third inning. He also walked twice in the affair. Now that he's back in the lineup and presumably healthy, the 26-year-old has some work to do to repair his .213/.332/.475 line through 45 games played.
Jun 3 - 12:38 AM

Updating a previous report, Giancarlo Stanton will be in the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday against the Pirates.

He's starting in right field and hitting cleanup. Cole Gillespie was originally slated to start in his place but manager Don Mattingly must have changed his mind after seeing Stanton take batting practice. Contact has been an issue for Stanton this year (63 strikeouts in 157 at-bats), but he's still a threat to hit one 450 feet every time he steps to the plate.
Jun 2 - 5:16 PM

Giancarlo Stanton (side) is not in the Marlins' starting lineup Thursday versus the Pirates.

Stanton returned from a week-long absence on Wednesday night but went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts. He may still be feeling some discomfort in his right side. Cole Gillespie is in right field and Justin Bour is batting cleanup against righty Juan Nicasio.
