Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton sitting vs. Dodgers

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 13:43:34 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton is not in the lineup Friday, April 29. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and batting first against Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to replace Stanton where you can in your seasonal leagues and avoid him in daily contests. He already has seven home runs through 88 plate appearances for the year. Suzuki is 8-for-25 to start the season with a .370 on-base percentage, which makes him a potential low-priced option in DFS.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton out of lineup

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 07:25:02 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton is out of the lineup Thursday, April 21, with OF Marcell Ozuna hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Ozuna is hitting just .196 with 14 K's in 51 at-bats. He's facing Max Scherzer today, and that's not a great recipe for success.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton striking out

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 04:29:08 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts Wednesday, April 20, against the Washington Nationals. He has 20 strikeouts in 49 at-bats with a .224 average.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton should turn things around, as most hitters endure early-season slumps. For now, daily league players should keep Stanton benched until he breaks out. Regular league owners need to hope Stanton breaks through in a hurry.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton likes new setup

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 21:36:39 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton hit a home run Monday, April 18, against the Washington Nationals. The homer landed near the 407-foot sign in center field. Last year, the ball would have been off the wall, but it was a home run this season with the team moving the walls in.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton has had a slow start to the season, but fantasy owners in seasonal formats need to stick with him. In DFS play, he is worth a look, too, especially when he faces left-handed pitching. He has a .305 average and 1.070 OPS against left-handed pitching since the start of the 2013 season.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton posts second clout

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 22:59:31 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton smacked a two-run home run with a walk, two runs scored and a pair of strikeouts Monday, April 11, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton has hit safely in each of his five games, but he has also struck out at least once in each outing. You have to take the good with the bad, and he also has six RBIs through five outings.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton goes yard vs. Tigers

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 22:40:05 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton tattooed his first home run of the season Tuesday, April 5, opposite the Detroit Tigers. He finished the game 1-for-4, also adding a run, two RBI and a walk.

Fantasy Tip: It was a pretty deep bomb in the sixth, and should solidify Stanton's clean bill of health to begin the year. As long as he can avoid injury, which hasn't been easy throughout his career, the 26-year-old behemoth has the potential to lead all of baseball in home runs, and perhaps runs driven in as well.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton hits first spring bomb

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 13:45:14 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (knee) hit his first home run of spring training Wednesday, March 23.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton offers elite power and should be selected in the first round of drafts. There are polarizing opinions on whether his injury history is more pattern or fluke, but as long as Stanton doesn't miss a substantial clip, his replacement's numbers on top of his own still add up to an excellent stat line. Plus, what if Stanton plays a full season?

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton feels good

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 09:11:27 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (knee) had two plate appearances (0-for-1 with a walk) in his return to spring action Sunday, March 13, and he said he felt "relatively good." Stanton played five innings in right field. "He kind of did everything," manager Don Mattingly said. "Got on base, ran pretty much all directions. We'll find out how he does over the day off. Hopefully, he's good and we'll just go from there." Stanton is confident he'll be ready by opening day.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton's knee injury is worrisome, especially since he's already had surgery on the same knee before. However, when healthy he's the best source of power in baseball, so he remains worth a first-round draft pick in fantasy.
