Fantasy Baseball Waiver Flavor: Week 8
Jonathan Impemba

Giancarlo Stanton is not in Wednesday's starting lineup.

Following an epic slump last week, Stanton has been showing some life at the plate over the last few days. The big slugger has gone 3-for-11 overall this week and belted his 12th homer of the year in Tuesday afternoon's loss to the Rays. Stanton seems to be simply be getting a day off, as Ichiro Suzuki will man right field and bat leadoff.
