Marlins expecting to have Giancarlo Stanton on roster in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:33 pm ET) Marlins president David Samson said even if the team can't sign outfielder Giancarlo Stanton to a long-term deal, he is still expected to be part of the Marlins' plans next season, per The Miami Herald.

"He’s on this team [in 2015] either way," Samson said. "I can’t wait until after the season to sit down with Giancarlo and [agent] Joel Wolfe and talk about contract. We’re ready. We want him to be a Marlin well past his arbitration years.

"We hope that he believes in us and believes in Miami and believes in the direction of this team and recognizes that he has a chance to be the leader of a successful team for many years to come."


Ryan Zimmerman could be Nationals' starting first baseman in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:14 am ET) Nationals infielder Ryan Zimmerman has come to terms with his future role likely being as a full-time first baseman since Anthony Rendon and Bryce Harper appear to be the long-term options at third base and left field, respectively, for Washington.

"Do I wish some of the injuries that I've had never happened so I can continue to play Gold Glove third base that I enjoy doing? Of course I do," Zimmerman said, per MLB.com. "But things happen. They are not easy decisions. It's not easy for me to say I have the possibility of moving from third base. It's reality."

If the Nationals choose to make Zimmerman the starting first baseman in 2015, then it doesn't appear the team will bring back incumbent first baseman Adam LaRoche, who has a mutual $15 million option for next season.

"Sometimes those things are tough. That's just how it is. We'll see what happens," Zimmerman said. "But I think it's more important to look at what [LaRoche] has done while he has been here, how much he has meant, not only to the players, but the fans and the organization. He is a great guy, never complains. He is a great teammate and a great player."

Ryan Braun set for thumb surgery Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun will undergo a minimally invasive surgical procedure Thursday in Los Angeles, the Journal Sentinel reports. It'll be the first time a cryotherapy prodecure has been done on the thumb of a baseball player.

"It has been the plan for a while," Braun said. "The plan all along has been to find the least invasive option that we felt like would give me the best chance to get the closest to 100%. I don't feel like I need to be at 100% to be one of the best players in the game, but I've got to be at 80-90%. I have to be able to use my top hand in my swing to feel like I can do the things I'm used to doing and capable of doing."

"I wanted to do it when we were in L.A. (in mid-August) because that's where we're going to do it. I thought maybe if we could do it then, it would help me get through the rest of this season and finish strong. But we don't know, because they haven't done this on a baseball player. So, everybody was worried, not knowing what the side effects potentially could have been. But, based on what we've been told, we don't think there's going to be a lot of down time."

Braun has been unable to properly grip a bat due to an ongoing nerve issue in the thumb.

"This type of procedure has been successful with other parts of the body," assistant general manager Gord Ash said. "Never on a thumb, but it's worth a try. Our understanding is that there is no downside to it; that it can't make it worse."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
