Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton cleared to hit off tee
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/29/15) Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton continues to take baby steps in his recovery from left hamate surgery. He has been cleared to take swings off a tee, per Fox Sports.
Dan Jennings has not ruled out the possibility of Stnaton returning next week when the Marlins close out a nine-game homestand.
"His hand looks good," Jennings said. "It's healed. The scar looks well. Now he's going to start off the tee ... he'll progress at his timetable. It's good to see him making strides the right way."
Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton cleared to take swings
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/20/15) A hand specialist cleared Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton to begin dry swings Monday, reports the Miami Herald.
Stanton was expected to miss 4-6 weeks after breaking a bone in his hand. Marlins manager Dan Jennings said he was uncertain of when Stanton could return to the team.
"I don't know that there's truly a time frame," Jennings said. "He'll know and he'll tell us. One thing about Giancarlo, he's very straightforward and very honest with his own assessment of himself and where he is. He's putting together a tremendous year, and you know he wants to be back."

|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/6/15) The National League All Star reserves and pitchers were announced on Monday evening, and there was no room for the reigning National League MVP.
Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw was not selected for the All Star team, although he's one of five candidates to take the final spot on the roster in the Final Vote.
Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant made the team as an injury replacement for the Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton. Bryant is one of two rookies on the team, along with Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson.
The Pirates sent two starting pitchers to the All Star team for the first time since 1960. MLB wins leader Gerrit Cole and fellow Pittsburgh starter A.J. Burnett will both be making their first appearance.
National League reserves are:
Catchers: Yasmani Grandal, Dodgers; Yadier Molina, Cardinals
First basemen: Adrian Gonzalez, Dodgers; Anthony Rizzo, Cubs
Second basemen: DJ LeMahieu, Rockies; Joe Panik, Giants
Third basemen: Nolan Arenado, Rockies; Kris Bryant, Cubs
Shortstop: Brandon Crawford, Giants
Outfielders: Andrew McCutchen, Pirates; Joc Pederson, Dodgers; A.J. Pollock, Diamondbacks; Justin Upton, Padres
National League pitchers are:
Madison Bumgarner, Giants; A.J. Burnett, Pirates; Aroldis Chapman, Reds; RHP: Gerrit Cole, Pirates; Jacob deGrom, Mets; Zack Greinke, Dodgers; Mark Melancon, Pirates; Shelby Miller, Braves; Jonathan Papelbon, Phillies; Francisco Rodriguez, Brewers; Trevor Rosenthal, Cardinals; Max Scherzer, Nationals; Michael Wacha, Cardinals

NL starters announced for 2015 All-Star Game
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(7/5/15) The National League starters for the All-Star Game were announced Sunday, and leading the way after an impressive first half is Nationals slugger Bryce Harper, who racked up nearly 14 million votes to pace the field.
Harper entered Sunday's game with a .344 average, 25 home runs and 60 RBIs, numbers that have him squarely in the conversation for the Triple Crown. He'll be joined in Cincinnati by players from an array of teams, unlike the AL's Royals-heavy squad.
Catcher: Buster Posey, Giants
First baseman: Paul Goldschmidt, Diamondbacks
Second baseman: Dee Gordon, Marlins
Third baseman: Todd Frazier, Reds
Shortstop: Jhonny Peralta, Cardinals
Outfield: Bryce Harper, Nationals
Outfield: Matt Holliday, Cardinals
Outfield: Giancarlo Stanton, Marlins
Marlins' Giancarlo Staton undergoes surgery on wrist Sunday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/28/15) Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton underwent surgery Sunday to repair a fracture in his wrist, reports MLB.com.
Stanton suffered the injury during Friday's contest and he is expected to need 4-6 weeks to recover.
|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.
