Giancarlo Stanton has set a target date for his return from hand surgery after finally building up strength again after a lengthy rehabilitation process. He could still have a shot at the home run title.

Stanton is chipping away at all of these records, which makes him a must-see for the remainder of the season.

The Marlins are again considering moving the fences in at Marlins Park, but that will not solve all of their problems on the field.

In the first inning last night, Ichiro became the second fastest player in MLB history to record 10,000 plate appearances, adding yet another feather to his cap.

Christian Yelich returned last night to spark the offense, but Kendry Flores was placed on the DL in the corresponding move after developing shoulder tendinitis.

Around the League

After signing Hanley Ramirez to that big-money contract this winter, the Red Sox are now trying him out at first base after he has struggled all season in the shadow of the Green Monster.

The Astros might have just found their groove after putting a 15-spot up on the Yankees last night. They jumped on Ivan Nova with five first inning runs.

Yu Darvish is continuing to work his way back to the majors from Tommy John surgery. He has begun throwing and has reported no pain.

The Mets, Pirates and Cubs have soared in August while the Nationals have struggled. Here is a small summary of the big baseball stories this past month.
