JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - 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.

All of that was good news for the Marlins, and especially for the 20-year-old Fernandez, who is in his first major-league spring training camp.

Fernandez said he felt badly about the errant pitch and took some razzing from teammates for beaning the 2012 NL slugging champion. Stanton predicted the situation would ultimately make Fernandez feel more like part of the team.

``Everyone is giving him a hard time,'' Stanton said. ``But I don't think it's going to hurt his confidence. He'll be fine.''

Stanton said he ``pretty loopy'' after the beaning, and his peripheral vision was blurry for several hours. He eased back into his training routine and said his primary goal Thursday was to ``get back on planet earth.''
