    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.

  2. Giancarlo Stanton takes batting practice

    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…

  3. Logan Morrison notches two hits in first rehab game

    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. He’s already behind the initial timetable laid out, but barring more setbacks Morrison…

    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…

  5. Settling the Score: Saturday’s results

    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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  9. Giancarlo Stanton to miss at least “a few weeks”

    Apr 30, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Mets Marlins Baseball

    We have an update on Giancarlo Stanton‘s condition: An MRI shows a Grade 2 hamstring strain. He’s ben placed on the 15-day disabled list. He tells Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald that he’ll be out a few weeks in a “best-case” scenario. There’s absolutely zero reason for the Marlins to rush his recovery given that…

    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. Stanton, who previously missed a week of action with a shoulder injury, exited last night’s…

    Athletics 10, Angels 8: Nineteen innings. Six and a half hours. Sixteen pitchers, including A’s Opening Day starter Brett Anderson who pitched five and a third innings out of the pen.

    Giancarlo Stanton was finally starting to come around with the bat over the past few days, but he could now be looking at an extended absence. According to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald, Stanton left tonight’s game against the Mets with a strained right hamstring. The young slugger suffered the injury when he tried…

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

    Apr 29, 2013, 5:40 AM EDT

    Russell Martin

    Pirates 9, Cardinals 0: Two homers for Russell Martin and a strong start from Jeff Locke. The Pirates — the Pittsburgh Pirates — are in first place in the National League Central. This goes with the Royals being in first place in the AL Central. I predicted each of these teams would be better this…

  14. Giancarlo Stanton has finally hit a home run

    Apr 27, 2013, 7:44 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Miami Marlins

    It took 76 trips to the dish, but our long national nightmare is over: Giancarlo Stanton has gone yard. Stanton hit Cubs starter Travis Wood‘s cut fastball deep down the left field line, estimated at 472 feet according to Joe Frisaro. Stanton had been battling shoulder soreness, missing time between April 11-17. The injury clearly…

  15. Giancarlo Stanton is back in the Marlins’ lineup

    giancarlo stanton getty

    After missing six games with a left shoulder injury Giancarlo Stanton is back in the Marlins’ lineup for tonight’s game against the Reds, playing right field and batting third.

    Apr 17, 2013, 10:56 PM EDT

    giancarlo stanton getty

    Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton hasn’t played in a week because of a left shoulder contusion. But things are suddenly looking up for the young slugger. According to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com, Stanton felt fine after taking batting practice on Wednesday afternoon and is scheduled to return to the Marlins’ starting lineup for Thursday night’s series-opener…

  18. Marlins targeting senior demographic with Thursday promotion

    Apr 13, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    Phillies Marlins Baseball

    It’s tough to be a fan of the Miami Marlins these days. Giancarlo Stanton is the only star on the roster, and the Marlins still may trade him sooner rather than later. The new stadium is a bit of an eyesore. Upper management is aloof, threatening to sue season ticket-holders and banning protesters. After drawing…

  19. Still too early to worry about faltering aces

    Toronto Blue Jays' starting pitcher Dickey throws against the Boston Red Sox during the first inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    The ERA leaderboard, organized greatest to least, is a bit of a shocker. At the top you’ll find both of the defending Cy Young award winners (David Price and R.A. Dickey), as well as Cole Hamels, Matt Cain, and Stephen Strasburg, among others. You’ll hear this a lot but it bears repeating: it’s still very…

  20. Giancarlo Stanton day-to-day after MRI reveals left shoulder contusion

    Apr 13, 2013, 3:24 PM EDT

    Good news for a lineup which is severely lacking in pop. According to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com, Giancarlo Stanton is day-to-day after an MRI revealed a left shoulder contusion. While the young slugger is out of the lineup tonight for the second straight game, he will not required an extended absence. The Marlins will go…

  21. John Buck has driven in more runs than the Marlins have scored this season

    Apr 13, 2013, 1:33 PM EDT

    New York Mets John Buck high-fives teammate Ike Davis in game against Twins in Minneapolis

    When the Marlins included John Buck in their blockbuster deal with the Blue Jays in December, they were mostly happy to get rid of his salary. He was later considered a throw-in as part of the deal that brought top prospects Travis d’Arnaud and Noah Syndergaard to the Mets for R.A. Dickey. However, the 32-year-old…

  22. Giancarlo Stanton held out of lineup with sore right shoulder

    Apr 12, 2013, 7:01 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Miami Marlins

    The Miami Marlins will be opening up their series against the Philadelphia Phillies without their best — and arguably only — slugger as Giancarlo Stanton will be sitting out due to a sore right shoulder, according to Joe Frisaro. Stanton has had a slow start to the season, as he is hitting just .167 with…

  23. The Mets would trade for Giancarlo Stanton “in a heartbeat”

    Apr 11, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton

    Well, duh. So would a lot of teams. But Andy Martino spoke to some Mets officials — not necessarily the top decision makers, but people involved in those conversations — and the consensus is that, yep, the Mets would trade top prospects including Zack Wheeler for Giancarlo Stanton. They’ve been “monitoring his situation” since the…

  24. Justin Upton, Paul Maholm an unbeatable combination for Braves

    Apr 8, 2013, 11:54 PM EDT

    Paul Maholm

    Justin Upton went 4-for-4 and homered yet again while Paul Maholm pitched one-hit ball for seven innings in the Braves’ 2-0 defeat of the Marlins on Monday. Upton leads the majors six homers, one more than Seattle’s Mike Morse, and he also chipped in with his second double tonight. He scored both runs for the…

    Rob Brantly Getty

    After scoring just one run in 27 innings during their opening series against the Nationals, the Marlins’ offense broke out with 11 hits last night in a 7-5 win over the Mets. Mike Redmond notched his victory win as an MLB skipper while the Marlins are no longer the majors’ only winless team. Alex Sanabia,…
