It has been a long road back for Giancarlo Stanton in his recovery from a broken bone in his left hand. Being out of the lineup since June 27, Stanton is set to get back on the field for his rehab assignment and could return to the Marlins lineup this Friday.

Derek Dietrich and Justin Bour have both had surprisingly strong seasons for the Marlins in 2015. The club plans on giving the two lefties more playing time to determine if they can become everyday players.

During his first season with the Marlins, Dee Gordon is having a career year in all three phases of the game: at the plate, in the field, and on the base paths.

After being reinstated from the disabled list early last week, Christian Yelich's bruised knee continues to bother him and the club is going to bring him along slowly.

Around the League

The Braves traded outfielder Jonny Gomes to the Royals in exchange for cash considerations and a minor-league shortstop.

The Yankees put in a claim on their former closer David Robinson, but the White Sox have reportedly pulled him off of waivers.

Last night David Ortiz went yard for 29th time this season and pulled him to within five home runs of 500 for his career.

Edwin Encarnacion extended his hitting streak to 26 games last night in a loss to the Indians.
