FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-4, blasting his 23rd home run of the season off of Sergio Romo in the ninth inning on Saturday against the Giants. 

Stanton has now homered in back-to-back games to start the second half of the season, as he continues to have himself a great 2014 campaign. Now sitting on a .295 average with 23 home runs and 65 RBI through 259 at-bats, Stanton has put himself into the mix among the best in the league and is on his way to a possible MVP run. With decent protection around him in the Marlins lineup, there is no reason to think his great start isn't going to have a matching finish if he can stay healthy. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
