Stanton crushed a mammoth, game-winning two-run home run in the fourth inning of Team USA's 6-3 victory Saturday over the Dominican Republic.

EDGE Analysis

The homer not only put the USA through to the semi-finals of the WBC, it left Stanton's bat at an unfathomable 117.3 mph, the fourth-hardest hit home run since Statcast began tracking exit velocity in 2015. He's struggled to stay healthy throughout his big league career, playing more than 140 games only twice in six seasons as a full-time Marlin, but when he's in top form the 27-year-old possesses more raw power than anybody else in MLB.

Stanton went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, his first of the spring, in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Giving new meaning to the term "walk-off homer", Stanton crushed a line drive down the left field line in his final at-bat of the day before leaving camp to join Team USA for the WBC. As is always the case with the 27-year-old slugger, Stanton's fantasy fantasy this season will depend on his ability to stay off the DL, not his prodigious power.

Stanton will play for Team USA at the WBC, The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

He'll join the Orioles' Adam Jones and the Pirates' Andrew McCutchen in the starting outfield for Team USA, while his Marlins teammates Christian Yelich and A.J. Ellis will also be on the bench for the squad. Stanton is coming off the worst season of his career, as various injuries limited him to 119 games with a career-low .240 batting average and .815 OPS, and his inability to stay off the DL has so far prevented the 27-year-old from becoming the fantasy superstar his elite power would suggest he could be.

Stanton is not in Saturday's lineup against the Nationals, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Marlins will rest several regulars Saturday as they play out the string against the Nationals. Jeff Francoeur will start in right field and hit fifth Saturday. Stanton has now sat out two games in a row, and it would not come as a big surprise if he was also absent from Sunday's lineup as he is fairly banged up at this point in the season.

Stanton is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Nationals, according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton has just five hits in 10 games since rejoining the lineup Sept. 16, so manager Don Mattingly decided to hold him out Friday. Marcell Ozuna will cover right field in Stanton's place, and Derek Dietrich will replace Ozuna in left field.

Stanton is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton homered in each of the Marlins' last two games, but he also started back-to-back days for the first time in over a month, so manager Don Mattingly decided to hold him out Wednesday. Stanton is presumably able to pinch hit, but he will open on the bench while Ichiro Suzuki gets the nod in right field.

Stanton went 1-for-2 with a walk and a home run in a 1-0 win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton provided all the offense for the Marlins, as they managed just three hits all night off Tanner Roark and the Nationals. It's Stanton's second straight day with a home run, bringing his total to 27 on the season, which matches his total from last year, albeit in many fewer games.

Stanton will start in right field Tuesday for the second day in a row, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tuesday's start will be the third Stanton has made since returning to action Sept. 6, and will mark the first time he has been in the lineup back-to-back days since Aug. 12 and 13. He was taken out of Monday's game after walking in his third plate appearance, but he looked plenty healthy blasting a long home run earlier in the game.
