News: The Miami Marlins still plan to make a multiyear contract offer to NL home run leader Giancarlo Stanton this offseason, despite his recent season-ending injury. Impact: Stanton suffered fractures in his face and other injuries when he was hit by a pitch Sept. 11. The Marlins are confident he'll fully recover, and they hope to reach a long-term agreement with him. It's uncertain how receptive Stanton will be to the Marlins' offer. He has expressed frustration about the cost-conscious franchise's constant roster turnover and the pitcher-friendly dimensions at Marlins Park. (STATS, 4:17pm)

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 says he's feeling ''much better,'' one day after sustaining facial fractures and other injuries when he was struck in the face by a fastball. Stanton leads the NL with 37 home runs and 105 RBIs. Impact: The Marlins say Stanton was expected back in Miami on Friday. The team has not definitively said his season is over, though manager Mike Redmond strongly suggested he does not expect Stanton back in 2014.(STATS, 1:40pm)

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."
