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

    Jul 11, 2013, 7:01 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Angels 13, Cubs 2: It’s almost as if Josh Hamilton hadn’t totally forgotten how to play baseball or something. Go figure. Two homers and five RBI in this romp. One of his homers was back-to-back with a Pujols home run. First time that’s happened this year. Nationals 5, Phillies 1: The Nats hit four homers…

    I thought Matt Harvey was the only ballplayer posing nude for that ESPN Body Issue, but Old Gator pointed out to me that Giancarlo Stanton is as well. He’s kinda got an Aquaman thing going here: In other news, we need more day games. If you’re curious how he maintains that bod of his, go…

    Just announced on ESPN’s SportsCenter, here are the participants for the 2013 Home Run Derby, which will take place next Monday at 8 p.m. ET at Citi Field in New York.

    Jul 8, 2013, 6:43 AM EDT

    Orioles' Jones watches his two-run home run off of Yankees closing pitcher Rivera during the ninth inning of their MLB American League baseball game at Yankee Stadium in New York

    Orioles 2, Yankees 1: Even Superman gets beat up once in a while. Adam Jones handed Mariano Rivera his second blown save of the year and the first blown save in Yankee Stadium in a dog’s age when he smacked a two-run homer in the ninth. Speaking of Superman, I finally got around to seeing…

  5. Marlins “aggressively trying to move” Ricky Nolasco

    Jun 25, 2013, 2:18 PM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Minnesota Twins - Game Two

    As one of the few non-Giancarlo Stanton veterans on Miami’s roster performing well Ricky Nolasco has been a likely trade candidate all season and Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports that “the Marlins have been aggressively working to move Nolasco as soon as possible.” Nolasco is being paid $11.5 million this season, so by moving him…

    Jun 22, 2013, 10:55 PM EDT

    Heath Bell

    Diamondbacks closer Heath Bell surrendered a two-run home run to Jay Bruce in the top of the ninth inning that turned a 2-1 lead into a 3-2 deficit. It marked the fifth consecutive game in which Bell has allowed a homerun: June 10 @ Dodgers: Juan Uribe walk-off solo home run June 12 @ Dodgers:…

  7. One man gang: Giancarlo Stanton goes deep twice

    Jun 18, 2013, 9:16 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Arizona Diamondbacks

    As I mentioned in the recaps this morning, Giancarlo Stanton homered twice, notching two of the Marlins’ three hits in the process and all of their RBI. Just another day at the office for the Iron Giant. But watching his two homers is better than reading the box score. Check out the video here. The…

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

    Jun 18, 2013, 6:59 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 2, Mets 1: A three-hour and fifty-two minute rain delay? Really? Despite that, Dillon Gee shut the Braves out through eight and a third and drove in the Mets’ only run. And despite that he gave up a walkoff two-run homer to Freddie Freeman just before 1:30 AM. Now they play a day-night doubleheader. Expect many…

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

    Jun 12, 2013, 6:22 AM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Pittsburgh Pirates

    The losing team scored two runs in eight of last night’s fifteen games. I have no idea if that’s uncommon or not, but I noticed it and I’m going to pretend it’s a sign or portent or something. Anyway: Pirates 8, Giants 2: Welcome to the big leagues Gerrit Cole. The 2011 number one pick…

  10. Marlins activate Giancarlo Stanton from the disabled list

    Jun 10, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton

    After missing the past six weeks with a strained hamstring Giancarlo Stanton is off the disabled list and will be in the Marlins’ lineup tonight against the Brewers. To make room on the roster Miami placed Casey Kotchman on the DL with a strained oblique, shutting him down just one week after returning from the…

  11. Logan Morrison expected to be activated from disabled list Monday

    Jun 8, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

    Logan Morrison Getty

    The Marlins had a miserable .198/.268/.272 batting line from their first basemen coming into play today, but the club should get a boost at the position in the coming days. According to Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post, Logan Morrison is expected to be activated from the disabled list for Monday’s series opener against…

    Jun 7, 2013, 9:55 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Miami Marlins

    Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton could be activated from the disabled list on Monday according to manager Mike Redmond, reports Joe Capozzi. Redmond says Stanton is “moving around great in the outfield”. The slugger has been sidelined since the end of April due to a strained right hamstring. The injury had sapped some of his power…

  13. There are players the Marlins won’t trade, apparently

    Jun 6, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Steve Cishek

    With the Marlins sitting at an MLB-worst 16-44 it’s only a matter of time before they start trading away veterans who generate any sort of trade interest, but they’ve repeatedly said that Giancarlo Stanton won’t be moved and apparently some other players aren’t on the block either. At least according to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com,…

    Giancarlo Stanton has had to slow down his rehab: Stanton (hammy) backing off rehab program due to sore knees. #marlins — Juan C. Rodriguez (@JCRMarlinsbeat) May 30, 2013   Well, either sore knees or the dawning realization that, oh my god, if he gets better he’s going to have to resume playing for the Marlins.

  15. Giancarlo Stanton takes batting practice

    May 23, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton AP

    Good news, Miami! Pretty soon all of those Marlins shutout losses are going to turn into losses in which the Marlins score one on Giancarlo Stanton home runs: On Wednesday, slugger Giancarlo Stanton took live batting practice at Marlins Park for the first time since straining his right hamstring on April 30. Redmond tossed the BP session…

  16. Logan Morrison notches two hits in first rehab game

    May 21, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Logan Morrison Getty

    Logan Morrison began a minor-league rehab assignment last night, going 2-for-5 with two singles at Single-A. Morrison has been on the disabled list all season as he recovers from September knee surgery and he hasn’t played for the Marlins since last July.

    May 7, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Logan Morrison Getty

    Logan Morrison is scheduled to begin playing in extended spring training games today as he recovers from offseason knee surgery. It’ll be Morrison’s first game action since last July and as manager Mike Redmond told Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald: “He’s been able to run the bases and do his stuff.” There’s no timetable…

  18. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    May 5, 2013, 8:51 AM EDT

    jose fernandez fish getty

    The Marlins are largely unwatchable this season, especially when Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) is sidelined. But Jose Fernandez starts are becoming appointment viewing. Fernandez, 20, fired seven scoreless innings Saturday in Miami’s 2-0 victory over the Phillies, yielding just one hit and one walk while fanning a career-high nine batters. He now boasts a 3.48 ERA, 1.06…

  19. The Phillies are not giving up on Giancarlo Stanton

    May 3, 2013, 9:59 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v St Louis Cardinals

    Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com writes that the Phillies have made “multiple inquiries” about the availability of Giancarlo Stanton and have let the Marlins know that if and when he does go on the block, they want to be the first ones called. Which, great, but given that the Phillies’ farm system is thin on blue…

  20. Marlins call up Matt Diaz from Triple-A

    May 2, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    Matt Diaz running

    In an effort to put together some semblance of an MLB-caliber lineup without Giancarlo Stanton the Marlins are calling up veteran outfielder Matt Diaz from Triple-A, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald. Of course, whether Diaz has anything left in the tank at age 35 is iffy. He had a .621 OPS between…

  21. You asked me questions on Twitter. I shall answer them.

    The more basebally ones will be saved for tomorrow’s HBT Daily. Here are the ones that don’t lend themselves as well to video: Q: Better BlueJays manager? John Gibbons #1 or John Gibbons #2? Which one was played by Dick York? I liked that one better. Q: Why do you hate kittens? This is inspired…

    Apr 30, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    giancarlo stanton getty

    Giancarlo Stanton was just starting to heat up at the plate and the Marlins have their first winning streak of the season after last night’s extra-inning victory, but now he’s been placed on the disabled list with a strained hamstring.
