Giancarlo Stanton

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

    Jul 25, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    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…

  2. Marlins move center fielder Emilio Bonifacio to second base

    Jul 24, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 15, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 13, 2012, 4:19 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 10, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    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.…

  6. Prince Fielder wins his second Home Run Derby crown

    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…

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

    Jul 8, 2012, 1:59 PM EDT

    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…

  8. Andrew McCutchen gets Home Run Derby call

    Jul 7, 2012, 9:26 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 7, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 7, 2012, 7:01 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 7, 2012, 5:46 PM EDT

    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…

  12. 2012 midseason awards: NL MVP

    Jul 7, 2012, 12:50 AM EDT

    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…

    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…

    Jul 5, 2012, 7:32 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 4, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    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…

  16. Robinson Cano picks his AL Home Run Derby team

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    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…

  17. Matt Kemp picks his Home Run Derby squad

    Squad captain Matt Kemp announced Sunday that he’s chosen the Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez, the Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton and the Cardinals’ Carlos Beltran to participate alongside himself in the Home Run Derby.

  18. Reds feel they were intentionally snubbed by National League All-Star manager Tony La Russa

    Jul 1, 2012, 5:39 PM EDT

    baker cueto getty

    Tony La Russa, the honorary manager of this year’s National League All-Star team, got to hand-select only nine of the players for his roster. And he had to be sure that every organization was represented. He went with left-hander Wade Miley (as the Diamondbacks’ only rep), outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (as the Marlins’ only rep), Huston…

  20. Giancarlo Stanton will be in the Home Run Derby

    Jun 28, 2012, 9:56 AM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton Getty

    I don’t really care that much about the competition aspects of the Home Run Derby. I do, however, like to see mammoth blasts for their own sake, either in sheer distance or in quantity. After all, what’s the most memorable Home Run Derby thing ever? Josh Hamilton putting on the laser show at Yankee Stadium,…

  21. Matt Kemp won’t pick Bryce Harper for Home Run Derby

    Jun 27, 2012, 11:50 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    MLB decided a year ago to spice things up a bit by letting a captain pick his roster for the Home Run Derby. It added to the fun the first time it was tried. Things might be starting to get interesting this time around, too. Despite popular demand, Matt Kemp told USATODAY that 19-year-old Bryce…

    Get used to this. From a bevy of MLB press releases that just filled my inbox: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim outfielder Mike Trout has been voted American League Rookie of the Month for May … Bryce Harper has been voted National League Rookie of the Month for May.

    Giancarlo Stanton Getty

    There are few things in this game more majestic than a Giancarlo Stanton home run, but he’s also a pretty good interview. Here’s Stanton’s appearance on NBC SportsTalk last night, where he talks about his incredible 12-homer month of May and what it’s like to play for Ozzie Guillen.

  25. Giancarlo Stanton went from one homer in April to MLB’s best hitter in May

    May 31, 2012, 1:48 PM EDT

    Giancario Stanton

    Giancarlo Stanton homered 56 times in his first 250 career games, but when he began this season by going homerless in his first 19 games there were plenty of questions about what was wrong with the 22-year-old Marlins slugger. It turns out, the answer was … nothing. Stanton snapped his homerless streak on April 29…
