Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) isn't doing any baseball activities yet. "No baseball activity but he's running in the pool. I just go by what they tell me. From what I've heard, it's a similar type of strain from what Kotchman has. It's taken a while for him. We really don't have a time frame. It just depends on how fast he heals and how fast he feels like he can get back on the field," manager Mike Redmond said.
Fantasy Tip: Stanton doesn't appear close to going on any type of minor league rehab assignment since he's not partaking in baseball activities. You'll have to be patient here. Don't expect him to return until some time in June. Marcell Ozuna will should remain on the roster and benefit from steady playing time in the meantime. He's been a pleasant surprise in his first big league experience, but the high average won't last forever.

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) will be tough to trade at the July trading deadline this year after injuring his hamstring, especially if he's out into June. "If they trade him in-season, they probably wouldn't get any major league talent," said one executive. "So given everything that's happened with their team and their attendance, are they really in a position to make a deal for him where they just get back prospects? Probably not. So they're better off keeping him all year and trading him in the offseason, so they're getting some major league pieces in return."
Fantasy Tip: If you're in a redraft league and were hoping for a trade of Stanton this summer, it's beginning to look like wishful thinking. Now that he's injured, you won't get much in return for him, either. You'll probably have to sit on him all year and hope he picks up where he left off before getting injured.

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) was diagnosed with a Grade 2 strain of his right hamstring, and he said he'll be out for a few weeks in a "best-case" scenario.
Fantasy Tip: This means he'll likely miss at least a month of action, but this shouldn't come as a surprise. If you haven't done so already, make plans to build your outfield depth around Stanton. Marcell Ozuna could be an option for you, even in deep mixed leagues.

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) said he heard a pop in his leg when he strained his right hamstring Monday, April 29, and he fears the injury may be serious. He will undergo an MRI exam Tuesday, April 30.
Fantasy Tip: Stanton will be out for at least two weeks, but this indicates that his time missed could be much longer. Brace for this and prepare for the worst possible outcome. In the meantime, Marcell Ozuna will play the outfield. He should be scooped up in all NL-only and keeper leagues, and he's worth a look in deep mixed leagues, as well.

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list after straining his right hamstring Monday, April 29.
Fantasy Tip: Awful timing, considering Stanton's bat was catching fire with his first three homers of the season over the weekend. He strained his hammy trying to leg out an infield single in an extra-innings game. He'll be examined today to determine the severity of the strain, but he'll miss at least 2-3 weeks. If it's a more significant strain, he could be out longer, but the early prognosis is that is unlikely. Marcell Ozuna was called up to take Stanton's spot. Ozuna was mashing at Double-A with 5 HR and 15 RBIs in 10 games. Pick him up in NL-only leagues and deeper mixed leagues.
