Giancarlo Stanton

  1. The Marlins have talked about giving Giancarlo Stanton an extension

    Aug 21, 2012, 10:02 AM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays v Miami Marlins

    Giancarlo Stanton hit a couple of homers last night and brought his season line up to .288/.362/.595 with 26 bombs. He’s good, you see, so it makes sense that this is going down: “There’s no doubt, we are very happy that he’s a Marlin,’’ team president David Samson said. Samson said the Marlins have had…

  2. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 21, 2012, 6:07 AM EST

    Jayson Werth, Danny Espinosa, Kurt Suzuki,

    Nationals 5, Braves 4: I suppose you can yell at Dan Uggla for messing up the play with the infield in and a runner on third in the 13th inning which allowed the winning run to score. But perhaps it’s also worth noting that the Braves played perhaps their most important game to date, in…

  3. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 20, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Pirates Cardinals Baseball

    Pirates 6, Cardinals 3: For the second straight year the Pirates play a nineteen inning game. This time, unlike the game against the Braves in which they were royally screwed, the Pirates won. Thank you Pedro Alvarez and Andrew McCutchen who drove in runs in the 19th, Alvarez with a homer. They had to burn…

  4. Giancarlo Stanton hit a ball really far last night

    Aug 18, 2012, 9:20 AM EST

    Giancarlo Stanton Getty

    This title is somewhat misleading, as Giancarlo Stanton regularly hits moonshots. But his home run last night against the Rockies at Coors Field was particularly epic. The original estimate had it at 474 feet, but ESPN’s True Distance Hit Tracker had it at 494 feet, which would be the longest home run in MLB since…

  5. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 9, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Jose Reyes

    Marlins 13, Mets 0: Well, that one got out of hand. Chris Young was beaten like a red headed stepchild (can we still say that?), allowing two homers and four RBI to Giancarlo Stanton and a mess of runs to everyone else. Jose Reyes extends his hitting streak to 26 games. Giants 15, Cardinals 0:…

  6. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 8, 2012, 6:14 AM EST

    Rockford Files

    Tigers 6, Yankees 5: Miguel Cabrera homered for the third straight game. The dude is good. The Tigers have won six straight and, with the White Sox loss, pull to within a half game. Speaking of the Tigers, I found out last night that one of the people I hung out with at Comerica Park…

  7. Giancarlo Stanton returns from DL after missing 25 games

    Aug 7, 2012, 1:20 PM EST

    Giancario Stanton

    Giancarlo Stanton was expected to miss 4-6 weeks following arthroscopic knee surgery on July 8 and sure enough he’s back from the disabled list one day short of a month later. Stanton returns after missing 25 games, during which the Marlins went 8-17 to fall out of contention and into a last-place tie in the…

  8. Giancarlo Stanton aiming to return from DL early next week

    Aug 2, 2012, 11:19 AM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays v Miami Marlins

    Giancarlo Stanton is scheduled to begin a brief minor-league rehab assignment today at Single-A and, barring a setback with his surgically repaired knee, hopes to come off the disabled list as soon as Tuesday versus the Mets. At the time of Stanton’s surgery on July 9 he was expected to miss 4-6 weeks, so he’s…

  9. Giancarlo Stanton expects to begin minor league rehab assignment Wednesday

    Jul 28, 2012, 6:00 PM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays v Miami Marlins

    There may still be a reason to pay attention the Marlins over the final two months of the season, as Giancarlo Stanton‘s return from right knee surgery is just around the corner. According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, Stanton expects to begin a minor league rehab assignment Wednesday with High-A Jupiter. Stanton underwent…

  10. Really now, what should the Marlins have done?

    Jul 25, 2012, 12:21 PM EST

    The Monstrosity

    Look, I’d be just as happy to kick Jeffrey Loria to the curb as the rest of you. I’m not going to slam him for all of the sliminess involving the Marlins ballpark deal because in those maneuverings, he’s basically just doing everything Bud Selig wants his owners to do. But, yeah, as far as MLB…

  11. Marlins move center fielder Emilio Bonifacio to second base

    Jul 24, 2012, 5:17 PM EST

    Nyjer Morgan, Emilio Bonifacio

    Yesterday the Marlins traded starting second baseman Omar Infante to the Tigers and today they announced that Emilio Bonifacio will take over for him there after playing center field all season. Bonifacio has plenty of experience all over the diamond, including nearly 500 career innings at second base, and the move would allow the Marlins…

  12. Stephen Strasburg beats Marlins, ends three-game skid

    Jul 15, 2012, 4:21 PM EST

    Stephen Strasburg

    Coming off three straight losses, Stephen Strasburg bounced back against Miami on Sunday, pitching six scoreless innings as part of the Nationals’ 4-0 victory. Strasburg struck out seven in improving to 10-4 with a 2.66 ERA for the season. Minus All-Star Giancarlo Stanton, the Marlins have scored a total of three runs in three games…

  13. Marlins place Giancarlo Stanton on DL following surgery, activate Emilio Bonifacio

    Jul 13, 2012, 4:19 PM EST

    Emilio Bonifacio AP

    It’s not quite a fair tradeoff, but the Marlins lost an outfielder to the disabled list and gained an outfielder from the DL. And it might be the best combination of never ever linked in the same transaction. Giancarlo Stanton was placed on the DL after undergoing knee surgery that will sideline him for 4-6…

  14. What to watch for in tonight’s All-Star Game

    Jul 10, 2012, 4:22 PM EST

    Mike Trout

    Tonight’s 83rd Major League Baseball All-Star Game will officially open with Detroit’s Justin Verlander throwing to Colorado’s Carlos Gonzalez. Still, my favorite part will take place before that. The Midsummer Classic isn’t the must-see event it was before Baseball Tonight, MLB Extra Innings and MLB.tv made seeing the league’s stars in action so much easier.…

  15. Prince Fielder wins his second Home Run Derby crown

    Jul 9, 2012, 11:15 PM EST

    Prince Fielder Getty

    We made it, you guys. Another Home Run Derby is in the rear view mirror, as Prince Fielder defeated Jose Bautista in the finals tonight to take home this year’s crown. It was Fielder’s second Home Run Derby win, the other coming back in 2009 in St. Louis. Ken Griffey, Jr., who won in 1994, 1998 and…

  16. Marlins upset they don’t have an All-Star

    Jul 8, 2012, 1:59 PM EST

    David Samson

    The Marlins lost their lone All-Star when Giancarlo Stanton‘s knee injury caused him to be replaced Saturday, and they’re steamed that another Marlin wasn’t picked to replace him. “I just think that all teams are supposed to be represented and if our guy had to have surgery, he had to have surgery,” team president David…

  17. Andrew McCutchen gets Home Run Derby call

    Jul 7, 2012, 9:26 PM EST

    Andrew McCutchen

    Andrew McCutchen is going up against the big boys. The Pirates center fielder, who is listed at 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, was named as Giancarlo Stanton‘s replacement in Monday’s Home Run Derby. McCutchen is tied for sixth in the National League with 16 homers this season, putting him on pace to smash his previous high…

  18. Bryce Harper replaces Giancarlo Stanton in All-Star Game

    Jul 7, 2012, 7:30 PM EST

    Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper missed out when the original NL roster was announced, again on the Final Vote and again as the first two NL All-Stars went down, but he will go to Kansas City after all. He was chosen as the injured Giancarlo Stanton‘s replacement on the NL roster Saturday, making him the youngest position player…

  19. Giancarlo Stanton to undergo knee surgery, out a month

    Jul 7, 2012, 7:01 PM EST

    Giancarlo Stanton

    Giancarlo Stanton‘s sore right knee failed its test Saturday when he was returned to Miami’s lineup, so he’ll undergo surgery to remove bone chips Sunday or Monday. Manager Ozzie Guillen said he expected Stanton to miss 4-6 weeks, but players have occasionally returned from such surgeries after two or three weeks. The Marlins will have…

  20. Giancarlo Stanton leaves Saturday’s game with right knee discomfort

    Jul 7, 2012, 5:46 PM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays v Miami Marlins

    UPDATE: Uh-oh. According to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com, Stanton left the game with right knee discomfort. 5:28 PM: This doesn’t sound promising. After appearing as a pinch-hitter last night, Giancarlo Stanton was back in the Marlins’ starting lineup this afternoon for the first time since Monday. But his return didn’t last long. He had a…

  21. 2012 midseason awards: NL MVP

    Jul 7, 2012, 12:50 AM EST

    Joey Votto

    There’s no doubt who has been the National League’s best hitter to date, what with Joey Votto leading the circuit in both on-base percentage and slugging. As for the best player, that’s still a difficult question. Here’s the top 10 in OPS: 1.082 – Joey Votto (1B Cin): .345/.464/.619, 14 HR, 47 RBI, 4 SB…

  22. Giancarlo Stanton set to return Saturday, participate in All-Star Game festivities

    Jul 6, 2012, 7:25 PM EST

    Giancarlo Stanton Getty

    Good news for the Marlins. And, well, for those who were hoping to see Giancarlo Stanton hit some bombs next week at Kaufman Stadium in Kansas City. According to Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post, Stanton plans to return to the Marlins’ starting lineup tomorrow night against the Cardinals. The 22-year-old slugger has been…

  23. Giancarlo Stanton ruled out through Friday due to knee injury

    Jul 5, 2012, 7:32 PM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays v Miami Marlins

    Giancarlo Stanton missed his fourth straight game this afternoon due to a left knee injury and Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post is reporting that the Marlins have already ruled him out for Friday’s game. Stanton underwent an MRI earlier this week which revealed a loose body in the knee. He took batting practice…

  24. Giancarlo Stanton could miss All-Star game with knee injury

    Jul 4, 2012, 4:46 PM EST

    Giancario Stanton

    Giancarlo Stanton is out of the Marlins’ lineup today for the third straight game because of a knee injury and told Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald that he’s unlikely to return before Friday, putting his status for the All-Star game in some doubt. Stanton indicated that he’ll skip the All-Star game and the Home…

  25. Robinson Cano picks his AL Home Run Derby team

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:28 PM EST

    Jose Bautista

    There was no talking Josh Hamilton into taking part in the Home Run Derby, so Robinson Cano went with some pretty good fallbacks Monday: Jose Bautista, Prince Fielder and Mark Trumbo. Bautista leads the AL with 26 homers at the moment, one more than Hamilton. Cano and Trumbo both have 20 apiece, while Fielder lags…
