Pitch Hits Giancarlo Stanton's Wrist; X-Rays Negative

"Reliever Edward Mujica gently lifted Giancarlo Stanton's injured wrist to his mouth and kissed the orange bandage that surrounded it. First baseman Gaby Sanchez took one look at the slugger and remarked, "You can't hurt steel."

It certainly seems that's the case with the Marlins' young cleanup hitter.

Stanton, who led the Marlins with 34 home runs last season, was hit by a pitch on Sunday in the Marlins' rain-shortened win over the New York Mets. Stanton was moving his hand and wrist afterward as he dressed, and X-rays came back negative.

"It's not too bad right now," Stanton said. "We'll see [Monday]. It'll be nice and fat.""
