News: Stanton (head) will require six-to-eight weeks before his fractures are fully healed, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports. Impact: Stanton was ruled out for the remainder of the 2014 season earlier Thursday, so this development merely provides a timetable for his return to baseball activities. He should be ready to go for spring training in 2015, and should continue to be a top fantasy option in the coming season.(RotoWire, )

News: Stanton is finished for the season because of last week's beaning. Impact: Stanton was hit in the face by a fastball from Milwaukee's Mike Fiers last Thursday. Stanton sustained facial fractures, dental damages, cuts that required stitches and two black eyes. The 24-year-old Stanton is a top candidate for the NL MVP award. His 37 home runs still are the most in the NL, and he was leading the majors with 105 RBIs when he was hurt.(STATS, 6:11pm)

News: Stanton (head) will not play again this season, Juan C. Rodriguez of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Impact: Stanton was subjected to additional testing after having his stitches removed Tuesday, and while the results of those tests have not been made public, the team has decided to play it safe and hold the 24-year-old out for the remainder of the 2014 campaign. Widely considered among the frontrunners for the NL MVP at the time of his injury, Stanton hit .288/.395/.555 with 37 homers and 105 RBI in 145 games this season. He also swiped a career-high 13 bags, and will likely be one of the top five players off the board in all leagues next year.(RotoWire, )

News: Manager Mike Redmond expects an announcement regarding Stanton's status for the rest of the season by Wednesday, the Sun-Sentinel's Juan C. Gonzalez reports. Impact: Stanton posted photos of his face Tuesday, and it certainly looks a lot better than it did initially after he suffered a facial fracture after Mike Fiers pitch hit him last week. Tuesday was also the day when his stitches were expected to be removed. Owners will want to monitor his status Wednesday for word of whether the star slugger will return to the field this season, but the general consensus is that he has likely played his last game in 2014.(RotoWire, )

News: Stanton (head) is expected to have his stitches removed Tuesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports. Impact: More tests will follow, which could effectively rule Stanton out for the remainder of the season. The general consensus seems to be that he won't return this month, after suffering facial fractures and dental damage as a result of being hit by a Mike Fiers pitch Thursday, but manager Mike Redmond suggested Stanton will likely push to make it back.(RotoWire, )

News: Stanton (head) received stitches and was released from the hospital Friday morning. Surgery is not expected to be necessary, the Associated Press reports. Impact: Stanton was hit in the face by a Mike Fiers pitch Thursday night and suffered facial injuries as well as dental damage. While it's certainly encouraging to see him discharged from the hospital less than 24 hours later, Stanton's season is likely over, as he'll require at least a few weeks to recuperate. The NL MVP candidate is hitting .288 with 37 home runs and 105 RBI.(RotoWire, )

News: Stanton sustained multiple facial fractures when he was struck by a pitch in Thursday's game, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports. He also suffered dental damage and a laceration that required stitches. Impact: Stanton's injuries are extensive, and they will almost certainly end his 2014 season. Stanton will return to Miami for further evaluation, and the Marlins figure to release another update on his status following the exam.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Stanton is likely out for the season after he was driven off the field in an ambulance after being hit in the face by a pitch at Milwaukee on Thursday night. Impact: The Marlins said Stanton, the major league RBI leader and a top candidate for the NL MVP award, was being treated at a hospital for a facial cut. He also was undergoing X-rays and a CT scan during a 4-2 loss to the Brewers. Asked if Stanton could play again this season, Marlins manager Mike Redmond said, "It does not look good."

News: Stanton suffered a laceration on the left side of his face when he was struck by a pitch in Thursday's in Milwaukee. He was taken to a local hospital to undergo X-rays and a CT scan.

Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Stanton left Thursday's game after being hit in the face with a pitch in the fifth inning, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Impact: In a scary scene, Stanton had to be stretchered off the field, and will be taken to the hospital for evaluation. The good news is that he appeared to be responsive and showed movement, and even assisted the paramedics that were lifting him on to the stretcher. The Marlins will likely provide an update on his health following the game, but expect him to miss significant time, and potentially the remainder of the 2014 season.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Stanton went 0-for-2 with two walks and a stolen base Wednesday in a 4-1 loss to the Brewers. Impact: Despite going hitless, Stanton was able to help OBP and stolen base categories. The slugger is in a 1-for-19 slump over the past five games, although that one hit was a home run. Stanton has also stolen two bases and earned four free passes during that span.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 9, 2014
News: Stanton belted his NL-leading 37th home run in Monday's 6-4 win at Milwaukee. Impact: Stanton needs one more homer to set a career high with 38. He's hit four home runs with seven RBIs in seven September games.(STATS, 6:15pm)
Tue. Sep 9, 2014
News: Stanton clubbed his 37th home run of the season Monday against the Brewers. Impact: Another day, another dinger. Giancarlo matched his career-high home run total and has little more than three weeks to pad his MVP-caliber numbers. He also tied Dan Uggla for the Marlins' franchise record with the 154th bomb of his young career. Stanton is slashing a ridiculous .291/.396/.560 through 142 games during his age-24 season.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Sep 2, 2014
News: Stanton belted his 34th home run in Monday's 9-6 victory over the Mets. Impact: Stanton is just 3 for 22 with the one homer over his last six games, but hopefully his Labor Day long ball can get him going.(STATS, 6:17pm)
