Giancarlo Stanton Trade Rumors: Miami Has 'Framework' of Giants, Cardinals Deals

Giancarlo Stanton Stats | Baseball-Reference.com

According to the MLB Network's Jon Morosi, the Miami Marlins have agreed in principle to the framework of trades with both the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants that would see them move Giancarlo Stanton, who is coming off an incredible season that saw him win the 2017 National League MVP. In fact, previous suggestions were that the Giants themselves might be favored to land the slugger.

On Saturday, FanRag Sports reported that if given the choice, Stanton would "100 percent" pick the Giants over the Cardinals.

It was believed the Marlins wouldn't have given either team clearance to speak with Stanton or his agency (Wasserman Group) if deals, or at least frameworks for deals, weren't in place.


One source told MLB's that a Stanton deal is not expected to be completed Sunday. As such, the rumor mill is buzzing with potential free agent signings and trade talks, especially around the future of Giancarlo Stanton. They were a "longshot", according to the report. Flaherty is rated as St. Louis' No. 3 prospect, and Alcantara is ninth.

By all accounts, the Giants and Cardinals remain the most aggressive pursuers, but Stanton is believed to be holding out for the Dodgers to make a realistic push.

The Dodgers have been somewhat hesitant on Stanton due to their desire not to exceed the $197 million luxury tax threshold or add another nine-figure contract to the books beyond Clayton Kershaw's. The right fielder has a full no-trade clause as part of the 13-year, $325 million contract he signed with Miami in 2014. This story was not subject to the approval of Major League Baseball or its clubs.
