7/19/2014 | Surging Lincecum aims to give Giants sweep

Second base has been an unsettled position for the Marlins, and the organization is now giving Jordany Valdespin a chance to see if he can become the answer.

7/18/2014 | All-Star spectators Alvarez, Hudson meet in Miami

7/18/2014 | In early hole, Eovaldi, Marlins drop fifth straight

7/18/2014 | All-Star spotlight suits Stanton just right

Being among the stars is something Giancarlo Stanton can certainly get used to.

7/15/2014 | Derby dinger defines Marlins' 2014 All-Star time

Though Giancarlo Stanton took three trips to the plate as a designated hitter during Tuesday night's All-Star Game, finishing 0-for-3 with a popout, flyout and strikeout, his All-Star legacy did not budge. Stanton's presence here will always be defined by the 510-foot explosion he generated in Monday's Home Run Derby, and there was little he could have done Tuesday to alter that.

7/14/2014 | Right on Target: Stars align at Twins' home park

It's regarded as one of baseball's best parks, and Target Field will be on full display Tuesday night when the game's best players take the field for the 85th annual All-Star Game. "It's a big moment," said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire. "It's a big thing for us. It's well-deserved. A lot of people have put a lot of work in here at the stadium."

7/14/2014 | Stanton stars in face of questions about future

For Giancarlo Stanton, the trade rumors are just part of his existence -- kind of like the tape-measure home runs he hits. But unlike the power, which Stanton has worked hard to maintain, the trade talk -- which has started to pop up again in recent days -- is completely out of his control. So as he was asked about it again and again and again during his All-Star media availability, Stanton was completely unfazed.

7/14/2014 | Stanton wows early, shut out late in Derby

The only way Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton could have lived up to the pre-event hype in Monday's Gillette Home Run Derby would have been winning the whole darn thing.

7/13/2014 | Road warrior MadBum, Giants head to Miami

The last time the Giants went on the road, they were trying to recover from a June swoon that saw the team win just 10 of 26 games in the month. San Francisco, which is 24-18 on the road this season, will travel to Miami to open the second half with a three-game series against the Marlins starting Friday. San Francisco All-Star hurler Madison Bumgarner will oppose Nathan Eovaldi.

7/13/2014 | Marlins can't end tough road trip on high note

After a frustrating road trip, the Marlins certainly are in need of a breather. They're getting one heading into the All-Star break. But rather than reach the midpoint on a high, Miami is laboring. Jacob deGrom added to the Marlins' rough stretch on Sunday, giving up one run in seven innings while collecting a key RBI single in the Mets' 9-1 victory at Citi Field.
