Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton to be more patient

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton said he won't change his approach too much this year, but he plans on being more patient at the plate with not much protection around him in the lineup. He prefers to hit third in the lineup because it will give him a chance to bat in the first inning. "They are going to pitch around him a lot. He's got to take his walks. I have to really get that through to him and make sure he is patient. If he hits 25 home runs and hits .330, it's just as good as hitting 30 home runs," hitting coach Tino Martinez said.
