Marlins looking at Sep. 4 for Giancarlo Stanton's return
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/25/15) Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton could be nearing a return from a broken hand. Stanton, who has been on on the disabled list since the end of June, is hoping to return by September 4 against the Mets, according to MLB.com.
"I'm feeling good," Stanton said on Tuesday. "I'd say I'm still about a week and a half [away]."
Stanton is not expected to play in any rehab games, mainly due to the fact that the minor-league schedule is starting to wrap up.
"I know he's been progressing in a good way," manager Dan Jennings said. "I had a good visit with him [Monday]. He told me he was feeling stronger, didn't feel it when he turned his wrist. That's a good sign."
Despite missing two months with the injury, Stanton still ranks fifth in the National League with 27 home runs.
Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton skips hitting due to pain
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(8/21/15) Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton had to skip a day of hitting on Thursday because of pain in his wrist while hitting, per the Sun-Sentinel.
Stanton is still hopeful to return to the Marlins' lineup in September.
"It's just wrist weakness. Not the actual surgical part; the impact on my incision area is fine. It's the weakness in my wrist in turning over," Stanton said.
"It's a little different than [with a] muscle; at 75 percent of a muscle you can jog and still do some functional things. But I need 100 percent of my wrist. I can't go up and [face] 95 miles per hour and just have 75 percent of my wrist. I need all of that to turn it over."
Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton eyes September return
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/20/15) Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton is targeting a September return after missing nearly two months with a left hamate fracture.
"We're getting there," he told Fox Sports. "Slowly, but we're getting there."
Stanton has been working in the batting cage to build up strength in his wrist. He acknowledges that there is still pain. His goal is to hit for at least five consecutive days without pain, but he's not close to that yet.
"When I can do that I'll be back," he said. "I got to two. We'll go from there. Two and then I couldn't get to the third, so start again today."
Stanton led both leagues in homers and RBI before going down. He still ranks fifth in the National League with 27 blasts despite his long absence.
Marlins 0F Giancarlo Stanton faces live pitching Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(8/17/15) For the first time since being sidelined with a hand injury, Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton was able to face live pitching Monday, reports MLB.com.
"He's in a hitting progression," manager Dan Jennings said. "He'll start to hit off the machine and live batting practice. Then he'll progress into probably a simulation game and one or two rehab games. Time for that is to be determined."
Stanton has been out since late June with a fracture of the hamate bone in his left hand. Jennings said he needs to build up strength in his hand before he can return.
"When he feels the strength is there, he'll step on the accelerator," Jennings added. "When he's healthy, he'll be back. I know he wants to finish on a positive note. I hope that can be sooner rather than later."
Marlins RF Giancarlo Stanton remains limited to batting cages
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8/11/15) While Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton (hand) continues to hit in the batting cage, there is no timetable for the All-Star outfielder to face live pitching.
"He's progressing nice," manager Dan Jennings said, per The Miami Herald. "He'll continue to do baseball activities. You know, it's just about when he gets the strength back in that hand and wrist."
Stanton has missed more than six weeks due to a broken hamate bone in his left hand.
"He has been in the cages, starting to feel some strength come back," Jennings said. "So, hopefully, that's a positive side that we can move that clock forward some."
|2014 Summary: This was the season Giancarlo Stanton owners had been waiting for. Yes, Stanton already had two 30-plus homer, 80-plus RBI seasons in the books, but because injuries had limited his playing time, he had never finished as a top 10 outfielder in Fantasy before. Through Sept. 11, Stanton had played in every game on the Marlins' schedule, batting .288 with 37 home runs, 105 RBI and 13 stolen bases. A Mike Fiers fastball to the face ended Stanton's season prematurely. Even having missed the final 17 games, Stanton finished with the third-highest Rotisserie value and the fifth-most Fantasy points among outfielders.|
Playing time status: Stanton should be back at full strength for spring training. With his record-breaking 13-year, $325 million deal in place, we now know that he won't be leaving the Marlins anytime soon.
2015 Outlook: We have seen what kinds of numbers Stanton can put up when he plays literally every day, and at age 25, there is room for even more growth. Stanton is not only a bona fide first-rounder now, but someone who will frequently be taken among the first five picks.
