Giancarlo Stanton Could Soon Be Traded To The Giants Or The Cardinals

Giancarlo Stanton Could Soon Be Traded To The Giants Or The Cardinals

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. MLB.com's Mark Feinsand also reported that, while there has been plenty of momentum toward a trade this week, it wasn't expected to happen Sunday.

Execs from the Giants and Cardinals met in recent days with Stanton's representatives, and Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports that Stanton himself was present for both meetings. As Morosi highlighted, though, Stanton has the ability to all but cease ongoing trade negotiations if he wants to hold out until another team enters the mix. The Marlins are said to have interest in second baseman Joe Panik, who won't be a free agent until 2021.

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 are enamored with Stanton's power, but are concerned about the luxury-tax implications of trading for him. The 13-year, $325 million deal he signed with the Marlins back in 2014 came complete with a full no-trade clause, so he has to approve any deal that gets done. Stanton could ask that the opt-out be moved to a different point in the contract, as a condition for waiving his no-trade clause.
