Giants & Cardinals wait on Giancarlo Stanton, with Dodgers looming

If the Los Angeles Dodgers are Giancarlo Stanton's first option, there has to be another option for the reigning NL MVP if talks between his Miami Marlins and the Dodgers continue to fail picking up traction.

The Miami Marlins have agreed to the general framework of a trade involving star Giancarlo Stanton to the St. Louis Cardinals and the San Francisco Giants, according to MLB Network's Jon Morosi. In fact, previous suggestions were that the Giants themselves might be favored to land the slugger.

Morosi reported Thursday the Marlins were prepared to accept Giants second baseman Joe Panik and top prospects Tyler Beede and Chris Shaw in return for Stanton as long as San Francisco was willing to assume at least $250 million of the remaining $295 million on Stanton's contract.




If I had to guess, they are stalling to try and find a way to clear up some money for Stanton, or convince him to wait until during the season or next offseason when the Dodgers are in a better position to take on his contract. The right fielder has a full no-trade clause as part of the 13-year, $325 million contract he signed with Miami in 2014. Stanton grew up 15 miles from Dodger Stadium, and it's believed he'd prefer to play in his hometown for the National League champs. The Dodgers are enamored with Stanton's power, but are concerned about the luxury-tax implications of trading for him.

As of Sunday, the Dodgers and Marlins were still in contact regarding Stanton, but have not made progress toward a deal, according to one source.

Stanton would help the Giants in the home run department as they finished dead last in home runs in 2017.
