Latest Update Giancarlo Stanton 2nd in team history with 3 seasons of 25 HR before 25 yrs. old Thu Jul, 31, 08:41 PM
Has light-tower power, capable of hitting the ball out of any park with aplomb. Can also produce a lot of runs. Is able to play either corner outfield position.
Flaws: : Needs to cut down on his propensity to strike out a lot. Doesn't have much base-stealing acumen to speak of. Can also use a little refinement on defense.
It has been known for awhile that Stanton is an elite talent and this is just another accolade for his resume. You should expect him to produce superstar numbers the rest of the season as the Marlins attempt to make a playoff run.Analyst: David KerrMore Experts..
Stanton is now slashing .283/.389/.565 with three home runs, nine RBI and seven runs scored since returning from the All-Star break picking up right where he left off in the first half. The Marlins slugger now has 24 home runs and 72 RBI through 399 at-bats as he remains on track to reach the 30 home run mark for the third time in four seasons. Those who patiently waiting to add his services on draft day have certainly received more than they could have asked for as he continues to be arguably the best power hitter in all of baseball.

Stanton is now slashing .279/.380/.512 with six extra-base hits (2 HR), eight RBI and six runs scored since returning from the All-Star break, as he has picked up right where he left off in the first half. He is now sitting with 23 home runs and 71 RBI on the season, while ranking in the top 10 in every power category. Although the addition of both Casey McGehee and Garrett Jones were not that attractive this past off-season, they have certainly provided Stanton with enough protection to allow him to have a monster season up to this point.
