Marlins Agree to Giancarlo Stanton Trade Framework With Cardinals, Giants

Stanton's Reps Receive Approval To Meet With Cardinals

Giancarlo Stanton #27 of the Miami Marlins during the game between the Miami Marlins and the San Francisco Giants at Marlins Park on August 15, 2017 in Miami, Florida.

In what can't be considered too much of a surprise, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports is reporting that Stanton prefers the Giants over the Cardinals. The reigning National League MVP could be waiting to see if the Dodgers, his reported first choice, will jump in and make a push to acquire him.

A deal is not expected to happen today, according to MLB.com's Mark Feinsand.

Stanton, of course, has a full no-trade clause. If the meetings had occurred while talks between the teams were still fluid, the Marlins would've risked losing leverage if Stanton agreed to be dealt to one team and not the other.

But from what it sounds like, Stanton is willing to wait until the Dodgers are officailly ruled out.

Stanton has been aware of the possibility of a trade for months. The Dodgers are enamored with Stanton's power, but are concerned about the luxury-tax implications of trading for him. Approve a deal the Dodgers liked - for the goal of offloading Stanton's remaining $295 million contract (or as much of it as a team will accept) - or keep Stanton (and his mega contract) on the books.

That's another factor, the state of the Giants and whether they can convince Stanton the team has a bright future despite the team-wide struggles starting after the 2016 All-Star break and a core of players advancing in age - the Dodgers' core is far younger.
