Marlins slugger Stanton out 4-6 weeks with broken bone in hand | FOX Sports

The Miami Marlins slugger has a broken left hand, which is expected to sideline him four to six weeks. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday and will meet with a hand specialist.

Stanton, who grimaced as he swung and missed for strike three Friday night in the ninth inning of the Marlins’ 7-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers, said the injury became worse as the game progressed.

“We’re hoping that it will be the quickest course possible, but certainly not great news when you lose a guy that means what he’s meant to this ballclub and to baseball,” Marlins manager Dan Jennings said before Saturday’s game.

Giancarlo Stanton is a monster who eats his Kit Kats whole

It takes three licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop and there’s no wrong way to eat a Reese’s. These are known scientific facts. But, there’s definitely a wrong way to eat a Kit Kat. As the old adage goes, one must “break me off a piece” of a Kit Kat bar.

That strategy has been passed on from generation to generation since the dawn of time, but Giancarlo Stanton doesn’t seem to care.
