Player Notes
Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Tuesday that the chances of Giancarlo Stanton (face) returning this season are "not looking good."

Advice: The club was holding out hope that they'd get good news from a battery of tests Tuesday, but, not surprisingly, it appears doctors have advised against Stanton's return. The outfielder suffered multiple facial fractures and lacerations requiring more than 20 stitches, as well as losing multiple teeth, after being hit in the face by a Mike Fiers pitch last Thursday. The Marlins are expected to provide an official update on Stanton Wednesday.

The Marlins have not ruled out Giancarlo Stanton's (face) return this season.

Advice: Stanton suffered multiple facial fractures and lacerations requiring more than 20 stitches, as well as losing multiple teeth, after being hit in the face by a Mike Fiers pitch last Thursday. He underwent a number of checkups in Miami on Tuesday, and the results of those exams will determine whether the outfielder has an outside shot of making it back this season. Ultimately, it remains a longshot, but the Marlins aren't shutting the door yet. "I'm sure as much as anything, he wants to get some answers and know if it's a reality for him going forward," manager Mike Redmond said. "His mindset is he wants to come back and play. Ours is, absolutely, if it can happen."

Giancarlo Stanton is not expected to require surgery to repair multiple facial fractures.

Advice: Stanton is expected to be discharged from a Milwaukee hospital on Friday and return to Miami for further evaluation. The outfielder told Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan that he's hoping to return later this season, but that's probably a long shot. All things considered, however, his injuries could have been worse.

Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Passan reports that Giancarlo Stanton (face) wants to return this season.

Advice: Stanton was diagnosed with multiple facial fractures, as well as dental damage, when he was hit by a Mike Fiers pitch Thursday. Passan also adds that Stanton had a tooth lodged in his cheek and a hole in his lip so big "the doctor's index finger could fit in it." There's a big difference between wanting to return and being cleared to return, but Passan notes that "Stanton's spirits are high." The odds of him making it back still seem long, but we should known more in the coming days whether it's a possibility.

X-rays determined that Giancarlo Stanton suffered multiple facial fractures, as well as dental damage, when he was hit by a Mike Fiers pitch Thursday.

Advice: The Marlins haven't made any additional announcements, other than to say Stanton will return to Miami on Friday for further evaluation. Still, it's obvious he's done for the year; at best, broken bones within the face is going to be a four-week injury and probably more like an eight-week thing. There's also no word yet whether Stanton is dealing with any concussion symptoms. The Marlins will probably mix and match right fielders for the rest of the season. Enrique Hernandez could see significant time there. They also have the option of playing Garrett Jones in right and Justin Bour at first base, but that would seem to weaken the defense too much.

Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Thursday that it "doesn't look good" for Giancarlo Stanton's chances of returning this season.

Advice: The results of Stanton's X-rays and CT scan aren't known yet, but obviously Redmond isn't feeling optimistic. The Marlins are already a long shot for the playoffs, and the loss of Stanton would pretty much do them in. An update on the National League MVP candidate will be available Friday.

Giancarlo Stanton left Thursday's game versus the Marlins in the fifth inning after being hit in the face by a Mike Fiers pitch.

Advice: It was an ugly scene at Miller Park, as Stanton was unable to get out of the way of a Fiers fastball that appears to strike him in the left cheekbone. He immediately went down in pain and there was blood pouring out of his mouth. Stanton was eventually taken off the field on a stretcher. Obviously there will be plenty more updates forthcoming on the slugger's status.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Marlins plan to offer Giancarlo Stanton the largest contract in franchise history this offseason.

Advice: The largest contract the Marlins have ever handed out is Jose Reyes' $106 million deal, and a Stanton extension would obviously blow that number out of the water. It's not clear at this point how much the Fish plan to offer Stanton, but Nightengale says they intend to keep him for the duration of the 2015 season whether he agrees to the extension or not. Nightengale adds that the club plans to "dramatically change their image this winter" and "build a championship club around" Stanton. The outfielder is under club control through the end of 2016.
