Giancarlo Stanton Newsbeat
Wednesday, September 07, 2016
Mattingly said that for now, Stanton is strictly a pinch-hitting option. However, trainer Dustin Luepker and the medical staff said the power-hitting right fielder could also run the bases.
“He’s basically a bat off the bench right now, and he will continue to rehab,” Mattingly said before the game. “We feel like he will continue to get better and better. We’ll see if he will be able to get back on the field or not to play the outfield and things like that.”

Really bad news for the Marlins.
“It’s a Grade 3 strain of his groin,” Hill said. “We’re going to rehab it, and best-case scenario is a six-week return. Obviously, there is still opportunity for G to be back this season’s end. But obviously, it was a significant injury and we’ll see how rehab goes.”

The Marlins suffered a costly 8-7 loss to the White Sox on Saturday night, as right fielder Giancarlo Stanton (groin) and left-hander Adam Conley (hand) sustained injuries that will put them on the disabled list.
Stanton was injured on the final play of the game, attempting to stretch a single to a double. Conley, who started and gave up five runs in four innings, revealed postgame that he has been dealing with a hand injury.

Defending champion Todd Frazier and current home run leader Mark Trumbo headline the participants in the 2016 Home Run Derby. The field was announced on Thursday’s SportsCenter….
Frazier won last year’s derby, defeating the Dodgers’ Joc Pederson in the finals.
In the other matchups, No. 4 seed Robinson Cano of the Seattle Mariners (20 homers) is paired with No. 5 seed Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins (19 homers), and No. 3 seed Adam Duvall of the Cincinnati Reds (22 homers) matches up with No. 6 seed Wil Myers of the host San Diego Padres (19 homers).

The Marlins ended up on the wrong end of history Monday.
They and the Rockies combined for eight home runs in Colorado’s 5-3 victory, making it the most runs ever scored in a major-league game in which solo homers accounted for all of the scoring.
Eight solo home runs is still ten short of the entertainment record held jointly by Elvis Presley and Mariah Carey.

Stanton is having a hard time making contact on pitches in the zone, particularly those up and in. If he’d actually moved off the plate, he’d in theory be in a better position to hit those, but that’s not what’s happened. In fact, since Stanton’s mechanics starting his swing look the same, a reasonable assertion would be that if the side was an issue, not only would he struggle to make contact, but he’d have a hard time being on time with his swing. That’s exactly what’s happened. Over the past few years, Stanton has always pulled between 42 and 47 percent of his batted balls. Through May 7, he pulled 45 percent this year. Since May 8? Only 38 percent.
