Stanton was named National League MVP on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton ended up narrowly edging out Joey Votto to take home his first MVP award. The slugging outfielder put together a historic campaign during which he led the majors in both homers (59) and RBI (132), while also hitting an impressive .281/.376/.631 in 159 games. He'll be the subject of trade talks all offseason, though he ultimately has the right to veto or accept any trade.

Trade talks between the Marlins and Red Sox for Stanton "may be heating up," according to a Major League Baseball source, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports. "They're definitely in play," the source said of the Red Sox, who are at least exploring the possibility of acquiring MLB's reigning home run king.

EDGE Analysis

The Marlins are believed to be prepared to entertain offers for Stanton at next week's meeting of general managers that kicks off Monday in Orlando, Fla. Other teams are reportedly in the mix, including the Cardinals, Phillies and Giants. Stanton has the right to veto or accept any trade, and there's speculation that he would prefer to play on one of the coasts. The Red Sox are circling after a year in which they experienced a drop in power.

Stanton went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI and three runs scored during Thursday's win over Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Baseball fans and fantasy owners have wondered for some time what Stanton was capable of in a healthy season. The answer is a historic campaign. Stanton is now up to 59 homers, 129 RBI and 121 runs with a .280/.376/.636 slash line, and he has three more games on the schedule to beef up his numbers.

Stanton went 2-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in Wednesday's win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

The only game Stanton went without homering in this three-game set was Tuesday, when Mets pitchers walked him four times. Stanton went through a little slump that lasted from late August into mid-September (.145/.264/.306 with just three homers and three RBI over a 17-game span), which isn't very good timing as far as the fantasy playoffs go, but he's bounced back from that beautifully. His 56 homers are easily good for tops in baseball (by 11 over the second-place Aaron Judge), and his 120 RBI are second only to Nolan Arenado's 125.

Stanton went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run, four RBI and three runs scored during Monday's win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton entered the game with a .542 OPS and a single round tripper through 40 September at-bats, so it was encouraging to see the slugger belt a line-drive homer and stuff the stat line Monday. With 55 bombs, 117 RBI, 115 runs and a .279/.374/.632 slash line, Stanton has showcased what his fantasy ceiling looks like when he's healthy for a full season.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Don Mattingly will give Stanton the day off for the second time in the past four games as the Marlins close out their weekend series against the Brewers. Ichiro Suzuki will take over in right field and bat eighth in his stead.

Stanton is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton will get the day off as manager Don Mattingly rests the Marlins' entire starting outfield ahead of the team's weekend series against the Brewers. Despite a slow start to September, the 27-year-old slugger is still slashing an impressive .279/.375/.636 with 54 homers in 143 games. Look for him to be well rested for Friday's series opener in Milwaukee.

Stanton went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Saturday during the Marlins' 6-5 loss to the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

He became the first player to slug 54 homers in a season since Jose Bautista did it in 2010. The blast was a 456-foot monstrosity -- the second-longest at SunTrust Park -- with an exit speed of 113.7, per Statcast. The big-league leader is in a fine position to threaten 60 by season's end.

Stanton is out of the lineup Friday against the Braves, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stanton was playing on another level during the month of August. Over 29 games he hit .349/.433/.899 and slugged 18 home runs. However, he's had a slow start to September, as he's gone just 3-for-24 (.125) across seven games. However, two of his three hits have been home runs. Ichiro Suzuki will start in right field while Stanton sits out Friday.

Stanton went 2-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

His 52nd of the year snapped a three-game homerless drought. Amazingly, he's had just one longer stretch of games without a home run since the All-Star break (July 27-Aug. 2). Stanton's putting up video game numbers and looks like the fantasy MVP at what was a reduced cost during draft season.
