2 more bombs yesterday.... 20 for the year. Supposedly the Marlins president was on hand to check him out... Hopefully a callup is imminent.
I know my keeper team could use the jolt.
I think its gonna happen in the next few weeks... of course I thought that when he went on a tear about a month ago. Maybin and Coghlan and heating up a bit and Ross is doing fine. Even if he does get called up, I don't see them demoting any of those guys unless they start to slow down again. I'm guessing you'll see a platoon with Ross or Coghlan.
stanton will play almost everyday... the other 3 will platoon.
I mean... Stanton isn't a guy that's gonna hit for a high average and on a Marlins team that already strikes out A TON that's not helping anybody. He adds power and a middle of the lineup presence and projects to be the prototypical RF if memory serves. So that leads me to think he'll platoon with the weaker of the hitters or someone will get demoted and he'll play every day... for this year anyway. I don't think you're gonna see a Jason Heyward type impact, but I do think he'll give you a decent amount of HRs (with the accompanying awful SO rate) once he's called up.
It's a keeper league. if he can match miguel cabrera's 20 yo season, i'll be happy (.270~, 20 bombs, 4/1 k/bb ratio)... if he matches or exceeds that, i'll be extatic. As for florida, their outfield is their weaker hitters. Ross will play center when Stanton plays right, Maybin will play center when Stanton plays left.. or at least that is what i've read. So essentially Maybin and Coghlan will platoon at least until (if??) the Marlins can ship Uggla and Coglhan can go back to his natural position of 2b. We'll see. I don't have much else to be excited about with that team right now... hence my man crush on Stanton.
