Giancarlo Stanton homered in the sixth inning during Thursday's loss to the Yankees and he continues to make his power known. According to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, Stanton has hit a home run in 23 different ballparks.

Stanton, who also paces the Majors with 63 RBIs, has been on a power tear, connected on 13 homers in 23 games. According to Statcast™, the drive was projected to land 420 feet away from home plate, with an exit velocity of 115 mph.

Stanton and Dee Gordon are hoping to participate in the 2015 All-Star game. But they cannot do so without your support.

J.T. Realmuto has been sidelined with a bad back, and as a result, the Marlins recalled Jhonatan Solano to provide catching depth. Jeff Mathis has been catching in Realmuto's place. Realmuto was plagued by a similar injury during spring training.

Adeiny Hechavarria felt he safely crossed home plate on Wednesday night. But instant replay said otherwise.

Dan Jennings is expected to remain the Marlins' manager in 2016. He has had success and is beginning to gain trust in the clubhouse.

Miami fell 9-4 on Thursday. But Sam Dyson walked Alex Rodriguez in his final at-bat, leaving him a hit shy of 3,000.

The Marlins placed Martin Prado on the disabled list with a shoulder injury. Solano was recalled in the corresponding roster move.

Miami wants to extend Ichiro Suzuki, who was signed to be the club's fourth outfielder and has thrived coming off the bench.

Jarred Cosart has not yet been activated from the disabled list. But when he is, he might be pitching out of the bullpen.

Jose Fernandez struck out 10 in his most recent rehab start.

Around The League

Washington's Bryce Harper left Thursday's contest with a hamstring strain.

Cole Hamels was scratched from his Friday start and somebody emptied his locker as if he had been traded.

Pablo Sandoval was benched after using Instagram during a game.

Yordano Ventura was placed on the DL with an ulnar nerve condition.
