|Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton to DL|
Sat, 27 Jun 2015 13:07:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ichiro Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) figures to see more time, but the 41-year-old probably can't handle an everyday load at this point. He has a .275-1-11 line with six steals, but singles hitters aren't too valuable on FantasyScore.

|Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton to miss 4-6 weeks|
Sat, 27 Jun 2015 07:25:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Stanton's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) absence will hurt fantasy owners since he has been one of the top power producers this offseason. Owners should monitor his progress over the next few weeks. Ichiro Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) likely will receive more playing time with Stanton out but is not a must-start option at this point on FantasyScore.

|Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton out awhile|
Sat, 27 Jun 2015 06:41:22 -0700
Updating an ongoing story, Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hand) has a lot of swelling in his left hand, and the X-rays he had taken Saturday, June 27, did not reveal the severity of the injury. Stanton will undergo a CT scan and an MRI exam. He is expected to be out awhile.
Fantasy Tip: Given the nature of the injury, and the inability to hit with a broken bone in the hand, Stanton ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is likely looking at a lengthy absence from fantasy production. It is too early to project how long he'll be out, but fantasy owners will want to look for a replacement immediately. Ichiro Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) projects to take over in the outfield for the Marlins in the short term, but fantasy owners should aim higher for their teams.

|Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton has broken hand?|
Sat, 27 Jun 2015 06:35:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The exact details aren't known, but this is clearly a devastating blow to fantasy owners. Stanton, the current home run and RBI leader, is obviously worth stashing in all formats, and until there is a clearer indication of his recovery timeline, seasonal owners shouldn't make any hasty decisions. Check back for updates.

|Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton questionable vs. Dodgers|
Sat, 27 Jun 2015 05:30:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Stanton ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is currently leading the league in home runs and RBI, so his seasonal owners will be eagerly anticipating the results. In the meantime, Stanton should be avoided at FantasyScore until he is healthy and in the lineup. Ichiro Suzuki ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) projects to enter the lineup if Stanton misses time, but Suzuki is nothing more than a low-priced flier in daily contests. Check back for updates.

|Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton hits No. 26|
Tue, 23 Jun 2015 19:25:19 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Stanton ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is one of the rare hitters who is worthy of nightly FantasyScore consideration. His batting average (.260) and on-base percentage (.341) are down this season, but fantasy owners shouldn't be too picky with the league's home run and RBI leader. Expect Stanton's ratios to trend upwards and for him to remain in the hunt for the home run and RBI crowns.

|Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton has weakness?|
Tue, 23 Jun 2015 10:13:51 -0700
Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton leads the majors with 25 home runs and 64 RBI, but he has had trouble with right-handed power pitchers this season such as St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez, who he faces Tuesday, June 23. Stanton has 23 homers on pitches in the strike zone this season, and nobody else has more than 20. However, he's struggled against right-handed pitchers that come inside with hard fastballs that also possess nasty breaking pitches to the outer edge of the plate. "He's more on his heels," said one veteran baseball watcher, pointing out the technical aspect that could be driving that sort of result. "He used to be more on his toes." Stanton has swung at 61% of breaking balls from righties that are away, and he's missed 45% of them.
Fantasy Tip: It's always tempting to click Stanton's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) name on FantasyScore because of the potential damage he can do to a baseball, but tonight may be the matchup you want to avoid when facing the hard-throwing Martinez in a pitching-friendly environment.

|Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton back at cleanup|
Fri, 12 Jun 2015 14:17:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Dan Jennings acknowledged that he'll likely stick with this setup for a bit, as it gives Stanton ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) the opportunity to hit with more runners on base. Stanton leads the league with 22 home runs, and Kendrick has allowed a league-high 15 home runs in 12 starts. It's a match made in heaven on FantasyScore.
