AN INTRASQUAD matchup Wednesday between two precocious talents left Giancarlo Stanton dazed and Jose Fernandez shaken. Stanton was hit in the back of the helmet during a Miami Marlins practice game by a fastball that got away from Fernandez, the team's top pitching prospect. Stanton remained on his feet, but left the game and said the beaning affected his eyesight. "I wasn't dizzy," he said. "I saw a little grayness and fuzziness on the outside of my eyes, but it's subsiding now. " Stanton bruised the back of his neck, and X-rays were planned, but there was no sign of a concussion, manager Mike Redmond said.

MIAMI - A person familiar with the negotiations says third baseman Placido Polanco has agreed to terms with the Miami Marlins. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the Marlins hadn't announced a deal. Polanco, 37, battled injuries this year and hit .257 with two home runs and 19 RBIs in 90 games with the Phillies. The 15-year veteran is a career .299 hitter with 103 homers. The deal solidifies the Marlins' lineup following an offseason payroll purge.

Odubel Herrera's transition from Texas Rangers double-A second baseman to Phillies everyday centerfielder appeared almost too seamless through the season's first few weeks. More recently, major-league pitching has taken advantage of the Rule 5 draft pick's lack of experience and plate discipline. No player on the Phillies' active roster has struck out more than Herrera, who after spending much of April as a leadoff or No. 2 hitter has dropped to sixth or seventh in manager Ryne Sandberg's lineup.

WASHINGTON - For Bryce Harper, two homers in his first two at-bats - making him the youngest ever to go yard twice on opening day. For Stephen Strasburg, 19 consecutive outs during one stretch of his seven scoreless innings. And for the defending NL East champion Washington Nationals, a 2-0 victory over the Miami Marlins on Monday in the first game of a season that lame-duck manager Davey Johnson has declared should be defined as "World Series or Bust. " Harper, the 20-year-old leftfielder coming off NL rookie-of-the-year honors, hit solo shots over the out-of-town scoreboard in right-center field off Ricky Nolasco in both the first and fourth innings.

GIANCARLO STANTON spotted downcast teammate Jose Fernandez in the Miami Marlins' clubhouse Thursday and flashed him a grin. "Relax," Stanton said. "Relax. " Stanton was feeling better after being hit in the helmet Wednesday by a fastball from Fernandez, the Marlins' top pitching prospect. X-rays were negative, there was no sign of a concussion, and Stanton said his vision returned to normal after a few hours. He expects to play in the Marlins' first spring-training game Saturday.

The World Baseball Classic has been far from a hit on American shores. Most fans cast their eyes a few weeks farther down the line to the start of the major-league season. Perhaps that could change this time around. After all, everyone loves some international intrigue. The Taiwanese baseball federation apologized to the South Korean federation earlier this week, according to South Korea's Yonhap News Agency. Why? Four Taiwanese scouts posed as umpires and snuck into a South Korean practice game on Tuesday.

The beaning of Miami Marlins rightfielder Giancarlo Stanton on Thursday night in Milwaukee was a reminder of the inherent dangers hitters face in the batter's box. Stanton suffered multiple fractures in his face when he was struck by a Mike Fiers fastball in the 4-2 loss to the Brewers. On Friday, Stanton tweeted via @giancarlo818:"The amount of support I have received from you guys has been tremendous & Heartfelt. I'm much better today & deeply appreciate your prayers!" Marlins manager Mike Redmond said before Friday's game at Citizens Bank Park against the Phillies that there was no timetable for Stanton's return.

THE MIAMI MARLINS' spending spree a year ago didn't work, so now they're trying another payroll purge - trading away their biggest stars in one blockbuster deal. Rebranded in a new ballpark at the start of 2012, the Marlins were up to their old ways Tuesday, swapping top names for top prospects. Miami sent All-Star shortstop Jose Reyes, lefthander Mark Buehrle and ace righthander Josh Johnson to the Toronto Blue Jays, a person familiar with the agreement said. The person confirmed the trade to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the teams weren't officially commenting.

MIAMI - Roy Halladay's final act was at 9:02 p.m. Saturday when he threw a 90-m.p.h. fastball. Greg Dobbs swung and missed. Halladay, without flinching, walked to the dugout bench. There, Rich Dubee told him this season was mercifully over. Myriad reasons existed to prevent his right arm from throwing 90 more pitches, except Halladay wanted it to end on his terms. The Phillies ceded that to their ace, one of the most respected players in the game, and permitted him this night. "They didn't fight me on it a lot," Halladay said.

MIAMI - The Phillies' pitching staff has walked 103 batters in 26 games this season; that is 10 more than the next closest team. The relief corps has issued 47 of those walks in 80 1/3 innings; that's also the most in baseball. The pitchers have been talked to about it. There have been meetings. But eventually the guys with the ball in their hands have to make it happen. Justin De Fratus did just that in a big spot yesterday afternoon. After the Phillies took a 3-2 lead in the top of the sixth in Miami, De Fratus charged out of the bullpen and needed just 10 pitches to blitz through the meat of the Marlins' batting order.

FOR A GUY who was given no more than 24 hours to prepare for his first start in more than 11 months, Dustin McGowan did the job of a spot starter yesterday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. The 33-year-old former first-round pick didn't allow a run in his first three innings against the Marlins. McGowan struck out the first two batters he faced, and kept at it, sending Giancarlo Stanton down on strikes in the third inning, too. "He looked sharp early on," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said.

Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna halfheartedly leaped in front of the center-field wall, to no avail. Ryan Howard rounded first base as Dan Haren's belt-high splitter found a home in the Citizens Bank Park bushes. Howard's first home run of the season - a two-run shot in the sixth inning - fueled the Phillies to a 7-3 win against the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night. The beleaguered first baseman snapped a streak of 52 homerless plate appearances dating to last September. The win was just the Phillies' second in their last nine games.

It was a night of firsts for Cody Asche while hitting second in the order. Asche's two-run homer in the 10th inning provided the Phillies with Friday's 3-1 win over the Miami Marlins at Citizens Bank Park. Asche hit second in the batting order as a starter for the first time in his two seasons. And this was the first walk-off home run of his career. "I have been waiting for that my whole life to do something like that," Asche said. "It is one of the cooler feelings on the baseball field.

The first time Ken Giles struck out Miami's Giancarlo Stanton, he used a slider. That was Monday, and when Giles entered Tuesday's game, he again encountered one of the game's best sluggers. Stanton waved at two 88-m.p.h. sliders from the rookie Phillies reliever. Then, Giles fired a 98-m.p.h. fastball past Stanton. "Good stuff," Stanton said a day later. The powerful fastball is spawned the nickname "Hundred-Miles Giles" and endless hype in the minors. When he pitches, fans fix their attention on the radar-gun readings.

Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins drew incentive from the wrath of a fan, and it led to the second walk-off home run of his career. Rollins' two-out, solo home run to left field off Dan Jennings in the 10th inning gave the Phillies a 5-4 win over the Miami Marlins on Saturday at Citizens Bank Park. Afterward, he credited a heckler whom he didn't see but certainly heard. "Some fan in the stands was popping off," Rollins said. "I don't know where he was, but it was right behind the dugout and was close enough to yell, and it [ticked]

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Let's start with Dan Jennings. He is the new general manager of the Marlins, and he said something interesting the other day. This was in the Boston Globe, in a story about Marlins slugger and human trade rumor Giancarlo Stanton. In his first 4 years in the majors, the 24-year-old outfielder has developed a reputation for two things: pulverizing baseballs and spending time on the disabled list. In baseball circles, the latter is often treated as seriously as the former.
