Heyman: Marlins concerned about chances of re-signing Stanton


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Though the Marlins are expected to make a "legitimate" long-term offer to outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports some organizational higher-ups are not confident that a deal will get done.

Though Stanton is still two full seasons away from free agency, pressure is mounting on the team to get a deal done. Opposing general managers were told flatly he was not available at the trade deadline, but that tune might have to change if an extension cannot be agreed to. According to the report, Stanton's primary concern at this point is reportedly playing for a contender, something the 55-59 Marlins may not be able to provide.

Stanton made his second All-Star team and has emerged as one of the best all-around hitters in baseball this season. He is hitting .289/.389/.546 while his 27 home runs and 76 RBI lead the National League.

Yoenis Cespedes tops Todd Frazier to win HR Derby


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and Reds third baseman Todd Frazier survived tiebreaking swing-offs in the first round before eventually meeting in the finals of Monday's Home Run Derby, where Cespedes picked up his second straight title with a 9-1 knockout of Frazier.

Cespedes' three first-round homers earned him a swingoff with Athletics teammate Josh Donaldson, and after Donaldson managed just one home run three swings, the outfielder delivered homers in each of his first two swings to advance. He defeated Orioles outfielder Adam Jones 9-3 in the second round after Jones managed four first-round shots, then took down Jose Bautista, who had a competition-best 10 homers in the first round, by a score of 7-4 in the AL Final. Twins home-field competitor Brian Dozier hit just two home runs in the first round, failing to advance.

Frazier played the role of underdog throughout, hitting just two home runs as the first batter in the competition but managing to slide into a swing-off with Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau after Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig failed to hit a single home run before recording seven outs. Frazier went first in the swing-off and managed one home run in three swings but advanced after Morneau went 0 for 3. The Reds third baseman took down Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki 6-2 after Tulowitzki hit four first-round homers. Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton earned a bye after hitting six massive blasts in the first round, but he bowed out to Frazier 1-0 after a long break.

Cespedes joined Ken Griffey as the only players to win back-to-back Home Run Derby titles. He'll likely enter the 2015 competition as the favorite to make it three in a row.
