Marlins' Stanton connects for first HR since September beaning


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton connected for his first spring home run Wednesday against the Nationals. It was also his first home run since getting hit in the face by a pitch in September.

Stanton doubled in the first inning against Doug Fister, had an RBI single in the third inning that made it 2-0 and tied the score 3-3 when he homered leading off the sixth inning against Casey Janssen.

"Today was a good day, obviously," Stanton said, per the Associated Press.

Stanton is batting .286 (6 for 21) with two doubles, three walks, six RBI and one run in nine spring games.

"He looks great," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "He looks confident. His swings look good."


Max Scherzer allows six hits for Nationals


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2015) Max Scherzer allowed six hits in three innings but the new Nationals' starter gave up just one run in Tuesday's start. 

Scherzer struck out three Marlins, including slugger Giancarlo Stanton. He also got Stanton to ground into a double play. 

Scherzer threw 47 pitches in the outing. He declared himself pleased with the performance and happy that he had the chance to pitch out of the stretch. 


Redmond: Giancarlo Stanton on same plan as everybody else


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2015) Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton hit third and started in right field for his spring debut Thursday against the Cardinals.

Stanton, who hasn't played in a game since getting hit in the face by a pitch in September, hit off coaches and participated in a few live batting practices before getting into a spring game Thursday.

“It’s been great to see him, he looks good, I know he’s in great shape and know it’s the start of the process to prepare yourself for the season,” manager Mike Redmond said, per The Palm Beach Post. “He’s on the same plan as everybody else.”


Marlins delay Giancarlo Stanton's spring debut until Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) The Marlins opted to push back outfielder Giancarlo Stanton's spring debut to Thursday. Stanton, who hasn't played since getting hit in the face in September, was originally scheduled to face the University of Miami in an exhibition game Tuesday.

"It just made more sense -- he can get more at-bats on the backfield," manager Mike Redmond said, per The Miami Herald. "We have simulated games going on back there. So, it just made more sense for him instead of going over there for one at-bat, keep him back here and he can get more at-bats and more work done back here and then he'll be ready to roll for Thursday."


Marlins' Stanton faces live pitching for first time since beaning


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton faced live pitching Thursday for the first time since being struck in the face by a pitch in September. Although, Stanton didn't take any swings and just tracked the 10 pitches he saw.

"I think it is a day he's been anticipating for a long time," manager Mike Redmond said, per MLB.com. "No doubt, as his season ended last year was tough to watch. For any player, that is a tough way to go. I'm anticipating him just getting in there and tracking some pitches like he's done a million times, and there will be no problems."


Redmond plans to test Yelich batting third, Stanton cleanup this spring


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Wednesday some of his spring lineups will feature Christian Yelich batting third and Giancarlo Stanton batting fourth, per the Sun-Sentinel.

"If I give you the lineup what are we going to talk about for the next six weeks?" Redmond quipped. "I want to mess around with some lineups in spring training, maybe hit Yellie a few times in a three-hole, hit Stanton a few times in the four-hole. I don't know how often all those guys will play together, but see where it works and how comfortable Yellie is in that two-hole.

"We know what [Martin] Prado can do. It's nice to have the flexibility. It will be fun to tinker and be able to mix and match and see where the best fit is."

Although Yelich proved to be a very productive leadoff batter in 2014, Redmond views the 23-year-old outfielder as a potential No. 3 hitter.

"I foresee this guy being a three-hole type hitter, run producer," Redmond said. "Will that be this year or next year? I don't know. That's probably up to him and how he does. There is always a little bit of caution giving him too much too quick, but I know he's a guy that can handle it, where ever we put him in the lineup."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Stanton has been able to workout in the offseason and plans to be ready for spring training. Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill said they have no worries on how Stanton will react to the protective gear.

"There's no concerns on our part," Hill said. "We've worked closely with Giancarlo and the helmet manufacturer. He will wear a half-cage to protect the injured area. He's worked out with it."

The Marlins will begin player workouts Feb. 24.

Report: Marlins president claims OF Stanton set to stay in 2015


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
