— Player Notes
Advice: There had been rumors that they were considering a change and now the decision is official. The club still intends for Marlins Park to be pitcher-friendly, but president David Samson wants "to make it more fair." It's obviously good news for Marlins hitters, especially for a slugger like Giancarlo Stanton.

Advice: Given that the Marlins have already begun a search for a new manager, this announcement was inevitable. Jennings was asked to return as general manager, but it's unclear whether he will stick around. The Marlins went 55-69 after Jennings took over for Mike Redmond in May.

Advice: Bowa previously managed the Padres (1987-1988) and Phillies (2001-2004), compiling an 81-127 career record. The Marlins are seeking a manager with prior experience this time around and have already interviewed Bo Porter and Manny Acta for the position.

Advice: Stanton was trying to push back from hamate surgery, but it just didn't happen. And there was never a good reason to rush him. Stanton should be 100 percent heading into spring training next February and he'll again be among the favorites to lead the major leagues in home runs. He tallied 27 homers and 67 RBI in only 74 games this year.

Advice: A decision figures to be revealed Sunday or Monday, as Jennings said that Stanton probably wouldn't travel on the season-ending road trip beginning Tuesday if it's determined he should shut it down. The club is leaving it up to Stanton as to whether he'll come back during the final week. "There still scar tissue and it's strength. It's the same two issues… We have left it in his court," Jennings said. At this point, it would be a surprise if Stanton returns. He's been out since late June following surgery to remove the hamate bone from his left hand.Rotoworld
