X-Rays negative for Giancarlo Stanton

    The Marlins can breathe a sigh of relief. X-rays taken of Giancarlo Stanton's injured wrist didn't show any fractures and the slugger is day to day. Stanton was hit by a pitch in the third inning of Sunday's game against the Mets, creating quite a scare.

    Manager Ozzie Guillen said he thought -- just from the sound of the ball striking bone -- that Stanton's wrist had been broken. Stanton was scheduled to head over to Fort Myers on Monday when the Marlins play the Red Sox, but those plans were killed after Sunday's plunking. Stanton will remain behind in Jupiter.

What I found disconserting was that Stanton took 2 pitches right down the middle before he was hit. That was a pattern on some of his poorer ABs last year. Take a couple of strikes, then swing at an awful pitch that was obviously a ball. He's too good a hitter to allow those type of pitches to get by him for strikes, then find himself in the hole. Until he overcomes that tendency, we can look forward to too many atrikeouts.
