Marlins | Still no Giancarlo Stanton

Mon, 30 May 2016 13:46:44 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (side) is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 30. OF Cole Gillespie is starting in right field and batting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke Monday.

Fantasy Tip: This will be the sixth consecutive game Stanton has missed, and before the injury, Stanton went 7-for-59 with just two RBI through his previous 17 games. Remain patient with the slugger, but he might fall short of his preseason billing. Gillespie is nothing more than a desperation start in all fantasy formats Monday.

Sun, 29 May 2016 12:23:24 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (side) is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran Sunday, May 29. OF Ichiro Suzuki will start in right field and is batting first in the lineup. Stanton is scheduled to take batting practice Sunday and could be available in the next series.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation because it appears that Stanton could return soon. Suzuki has seen regular playing time lately and should be a fine starting option in daily fantasy leagues.

Marlins | Two Miami OFs remain sidelined Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:08:32 -0700

Miami Marlins OFs Giancarlo Stanton (side) and Christian Yelich (back) remain out of the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Aaron Blair Saturday, May 28. OF Ichiro Suzuki will bat leadoff and play right field, while OF Cole Gillespie plays left field and bats seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton and Yelich are both considered day-to-day and could be used off the bench during this weekend's series but should be avoided in all fantasy formats as long as they aren't starting. Suzuki is hitting .407 (11-for-27) with two doubles and an RBI over the past week, while Gillespie is batting .313 (5-for-16) with a pair of doubles and four RBI over the same span. Both players are excellent sources of productive cap relief for daily fantasy contests.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton takes swings Friday

Fri, 27 May 2016 17:20:20 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (side) swung the bat 30 times in the batting cages Friday, May 27, with 15 swings coming off a tee and the rest coming off flips in the cages. Stanton is listed as day-to-day and hasn't played since Monday, May 23, but could be used as a pinch-hitter during this weekend's series against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton is hitting just .214 with 12 home runs and 26 RBI this season and should be avoided in daily fantasy contests until he has played at least one full game without experiencing any setbacks. Ichiro Suzuki should continue to see most of the playing time in right field while Stanton is sidelined and he makes a solid value play in daily games.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich out

Fri, 27 May 2016 12:00:51 -0700

Miami Marlins OFs Giancarlo Stanton (side) and Christian Yelich (back) remain out of the starting lineup Friday, May 27. OF Ichiro Suzuki is playing right field and batting leadoff again, while OF Cole Gillespie is starting in left field and batting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton and Yelich remain day-to-day, so keep tabs on their progress heading into weekend play. Suzuki has been hot this week and gains added short-term value hitting leadoff with both Yelich and Stanton out. He's a fine addition to daily lineups against Perez. Gillespie is more of a desperation daily flyer with justs six home runs in his six-year career.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton out Thursday

Thu, 26 May 2016 08:09:53 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the lineup again Thursday, May 26, after missing the previous game with soreness in his right side. OF Cole Gillespie is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough break for Stanton because he broke a slump with a home run the night before the soreness pulled him from the lineup. It's pretty telling that he has been held out two days in a row when the team has the designated hitter available in Tampa. Gillespie is hitting .154 with seven K's in 13 at-bats. He isn't a good option against Drew Smyly.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton out with soreness

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:39:55 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the starting lineup with "a little soreness" in his right side Wednesday, May 25, according to manager Don Mattingly. OF Ichiro Suzuki is starting in right field and batting leadoff against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton did hit a home run last night, but he's been struggling big time in recent weeks. He's hitting just .173 with four home runs and 31 strikeouts in 75 at-bats in May. Despite the slump, Stanton should continue to be started in all formats when he's in the lineup. Perhaps the rest day will help him get back on track. Suzuki went hitless yesterday but has been red-hot at the plate and isn't a bad flier to take in daily games tonight.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton goes deep

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:09:36 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-4 with one home run and one RBI against the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday, May 24. His home run snapped a 6-for-57 drought.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton hit his first home run in seven games Tuesday but still has only three games during that span. Stanton should still be in starting lineups because of his power potential, but owners in daily fantasy leagues may want to look at other options.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton struggling

Sun, 22 May 2016 01:09:16 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts Saturday, May 21, against the Washington Nationals. Stanton has 15 strikeouts in his last five games.

Fantasy Tip: Stanton was .265-27-67 last season and had 95 strikeouts in 74 games. Stanton is still worth playing because he could break out of that slump and go on a tear at any time. Still, it is very frustrating because Stanton could have problems at the plate that are difficult to overcome.

Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton working with coaches

Wed, 18 May 2016 15:32:16 -0700

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton is working with hitting coaches Barry Bonds and Frank Menechino regarding his current slump. With the club's loss Wednesday, May 18, versus the Philadelphia Phillies, Stanton finished the series 0-for-10 with nine strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: There's no doubt Stanton is in an ugly slump right now, but given his monstrous talents, there's every reason to believe he'll break out of his funk sooner than later. Just keep starting him and hope his inevitable resurgence is close.
