Marlins consider Giancarlo Stanton day to day


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2015) Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is considered day to day in his recovery from a fracture in his wrist, reports Fox Sports. Stanton went 0 for 2 during a rehab game Tuesday, but left after not feeling right.

"It's a just a matter of when the wrist and the soreness goes out of the hand," manager Dan Jennings said. "I think it's a plus that he went down to try the rehab start and test himself to see where he is. Now it's just how much time it will take before he can come back and be as close to 100 percent and the comfort level of his strength with his hand and his wrist."


Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton might start rehab assignment Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(9/2/2015) Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton is expected to test out his surgically repaired wrist by swinging a bat on Wednesday. 

If Stanton reports no issues, he could play in a rehab game for Class A Jupiter on Wednesday night, according to MLB.com. 

Stanton, of course, has been sidelined for over two months with a broken wrist. The team had been hopeful for his return on Friday, but there has been no word as to whether that will happen or not.


Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton likely won't be back by Friday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2015) Hope that Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton can return by his Friday target date has faded, per MLB.com.

Stanton said Tuesday he felt "not 100 percent."

A broken hand has prevented Stanton from playing since June 26. He has not played in any rehab games.


Marlins looking at Sep. 4 for Giancarlo Stanton's return


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/25/2015) 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
(8/21/2015) 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
(8/20/2015) 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
(8/17/2015) 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."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"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."


Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton still experiencing discomfort in swing


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Dan Jennings has not ruled out the possibility of Stnaton returning next week when the Marlins close out a nine-game homestand.

Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton cleared to take swings


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

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 Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/5/2015) 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.

Second baseman: Dee Gordon, Marlins
