UPDATES & NEWS
Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, a run scored and a walk against the Padres on Thursday.
Stanton blasted his four home run in his last 10 games on Thursday night, bringing his season total to 11 with 40 RBI while supporting a .294 average. There has been little to complain about with his production in the early going and as long as he can stay off the trainer's table he will continue to be on pace for a career-year so sit back and enjoy the ride.

Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
