Now he’s taking a swing at something new. Being a spokesman.

It’s not every day that you see a baseball slugger play DJ, but for Giancarlo Stanton it was all in a night’s work.

The Marlins big ticket player is now a spokesman for big time watchmaker Tag Huer and he’s not bashful about pushing the brand.

Stanton’s mega deal with the Marlins, $300 million and change, put him on the national radar.

A few magazine covers later and now he’s a nationally known commodity ready to take on his share of endorsements.

Unfortunately for the Marlins, Stanton has been out of the lineup more than two months after a fluke injury.

He broke a bone in his left hand taking one his mighty swings.

An unexpected buildup of scar tissue has made it slow to heal.

Certainly by next season, Stanton expects to be as good as new.

The Marlins are glad Stanton’s having a good time in this new role but they hope his luck improves on the field.

He has missed three months over the past two seasons.

Last year, his season ended when he took a pitch to the head in mid-September.
