Giancarlo Stanton doubled, scored a run, and stole a base in four at-bats of Sunday’s 3-2 victory over the Giants.
Stanton had homered in his previous two games so I am a little disappointed in his performance.. All kidding aside Stanton is on pace to play his first full season since appearing in 150 games back in 2011. A healthy Stanton is a fun player to watch and this season has been no different as he hitting .295 with 23 home runs and 65 RBI. The Marlins next game comes against Julio Teheran and the Braves. Teheran has actually fared well against Stanton holding him to just two hits over 15 at bats ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Salty has been god awful so far this season, and the Marlins feel comfortable going forward with J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher. They decided to designate him for assignment, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to go after the veteran catcher. Going to Arizona wouldn't do much for his fantasy value besides for having him remain in the big leagues, so unless he somehow turns it around and gets a deal worked out with the D-Backs, punt on Saltalamacchia.
