    Giancarlo Stanton has been out of the Marlins’ lineup since being hit on the wrist by a pitch Sunday and today manager Ozzie Guillen revealed that he’s also dealing with a knee injury. X-rays on Stanton’s wrist were negative and there’s no indication that the knee problems are major, but Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports…

  2. Mike Stanton wants to be called Giancarlo Stanton now

    Feb 29, 2012, 1:50 PM EST

    Mike Stanton

    Mike Stanton‘s birth name is actually Giancarlo Cruz Michael Stanton and apparently the 22-year-old Marlins slugger wants to be called Giancarlo from now on. Steven Wine of the Associated Press writes that the Marlins now list Stanton as “Giancarlo” rather than “Mike” on their roster and also display “Giancarlo” on his locker and his paychecks.…

  3. Running down the rosters: Miami Marlins

    Feb 21, 2012, 11:30 PM EST

    Marlins Spring Baseball

    The hopes are high with LeBron James having one of the greatest statistical seasons in NBA history and the Dolphins potentially landing Peyton Manning or Matt Flynn as their new quarterback. Also, the baseball team has a new name, a new stadium and a new star shortstop. Let’s see if that does the Marlins any…

  5. Marlins sell out first game at new stadium — sort of

    The Miami Marlins have figured out a way to erase the embarrassment of poor attendance figures: Make fewer tickets available. Brilliant! The Marlins have announced a sellout for their first game at their new ballpark, a contest against the University of Miami on March 6, reports the Miami Herald. Of course calling it a sellout…

  6. Logan Morrison is off limits

    Dec 23, 2011, 11:57 AM EST

    Logan Morrison

    Every time there has been talk of a trade involving the Marlins, Logan Morrison‘s name comes up.  It should probably stop coming up, though, because the Marlins consider him — and Mike Stanton, duh — off limits.  All of that can be found in a decent “state of the Marlins trade chits” article by Joe…

  7. Hunter Pence as your 2012 NL MVP?

    Dec 15, 2011, 6:35 PM EST

    He can't believe it either.

    CSNPhilly.com’s Casey Feeney makes the case. I’ll admit that I wrote it off in about a nano-second after reading the headline, but the more I thought about it, it’s not so far-fetched. Ryan Howard‘s RBI totals have made him an annual MVP candidate despite the fact that he’s only really had one season in which…

  8. Mets open to moving anyone except David Wright; Jon Niese in play

    Dec 7, 2011, 7:10 PM EST

    Jon Niese

    7:15 p.m. EST update: The Yankees have also been in touch with the Mets regarding Niese, though they’d seem to be unlikely trading partners. The rivals haven’t done a deal together since swapping left-handed relievers Mike Stanton and Felix Heredia in 2004. 7:10 p.m. EST update: Sherman reports that the Blue Jays, Red Sox, Rockies and…

  9. The Royals are interested in Gio Gonzalez

    Dec 5, 2011, 7:02 PM EST

    Gio Gonzalez

    The Royals are currently scouring the trade market for starting pitchers and according to Jon Heyman of SI.com, they have expressed interest in Athletics’ left-hander Gio Gonzalez. We heard late last month that the Marlins discussed a potential deal with the A’s, but balked at the asking price of either Logan Morrison or Mike Stanton.…

  10. Marlins’ deal for Jose Reyes puts Hanley Ramirez in the spotlight

    Dec 4, 2011, 8:17 PM EST

    Hanley Ramirez

    Hanley Ramirez likes Jose Reyes just fine, but he’s made it clear that he sees himself as a shortstop. With the Marlins now reportedly having landed Reyes, Ramirez is going to be asked to change positions, probably to third base. How that plays with Hanley could well determine the course of the Marlins franchise for these…

  11. The Marlins have discussed Prince Fielder

    Dec 2, 2011, 4:03 PM EST

    Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder walks back to the dugout after grounding out to the St. Louis Cardinals in the 8th inning in Game 6 of the MLB NLCS baseball playoffs in Milwaukee

    Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi write today that the Marlins have “discussed Prince Fielder internally and done background work on his makeup.”  They add that “some club officials are indeed enamored of the idea” of putting Fielder in the same lineup as Mike Stanton. This is somewhat tepid, I suppose, inasmuch as it doesn’t sound…

  12. Can Mike Stanton hit 40 homers in his first full season?

    Jan 10, 2011, 10:22 AM EST

    mike-stanton

    Mike Stanton hit 43 homers between the minors and majors last season, including 22 long balls in 100 games with the Marlins following his call-up in mid-June, which has Joe Frisaro of MLB.com wondering if he can break the franchise record for homers in his first full season. Gary Sheffield owns that mark with 42…
