Video: Giancarlo Stanton homers into the camera room at Marlins Park

11 Comments

Giancarlo Stanton keeps finding new ways to make his home runs interesting. Recently, he hit a home run completely out of Dodger Stadium. On Friday against the Braves, he drilled a Cody Martin fastball to straightaway center field, finding the relatively small window of the camera room in center field at Marlins Park.

The blast was Stanton’s second of the game and his 10th on the year. He’s batting .258/.336/.545 with 35 RBI. He is good at hitting baseballs.

Mets lose Robinson Canó, Jeff McNeil to injured list

As Bill wrote last night, Robinson Canó — bashed for his lack of hustle just a few days ago — busted it out of the box last night and strained his hamstring. That has now landed him on the injured list. Adeiny Hechavarria took over at second base after Cano’s last night and is starting there in today’s game versus the Nationals. No timetable has been given for Canó, but one usually misses at least a couple of weeks with hamstring pulls, sometimes longer.

Also going on the shelf for the Mets is Jeff McNeil, who hurt his hamstring on Tuesday. J.D. Davis will cover for him until he comes back. Michael Conforto is the next regular outfielder who should return to the fold. He has still not been given an offical comeback date after hitting the injured list with a concussion, but it was reported yesterday that he has been symptom free for a few days, which is a good sign.
