Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (groin) could return for the final week of the regular season if things go "absolutely perfect," according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.
What It Means:
Marlins' president of baseball operations Michael Hill said last week that Stanton is hoping to play in the final week of the season, so this is another positive report that Stanton might be able to play a little more in 2016. However, he is only two weeks removed from a Grade 3 groin strain, so it's still too early to tell if a return this year is possible.
Stanton is slashing .244/.329/.496 with a .351 wOBA across 432 plate appearances this season. He has 25 homers and 70 RBI's to go along with a 1.01 nERD.
New York Mets shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera departed Sunday's game versus the Philadelphia Phillies with an apparent arm injury.
What It Means:
Cabrera collided with Phillies first baseman Tommy Joseph on a bunt single attempt and looked to injure either his arm or wrist. He initially stayed in the game, but was removed after showing some obvious pain. Jose Reyes shifted from third to shortstop, while Wilmer Flores came in and took over at third.
In his first season in New York, Cabrera is slashing .269/.320/.444 with a .326 wOBA over 438 plate appearances in 2016. He has 16 homers and 42 RBI's this season, but his walk rate is a career low 5.5 percent.
