MLB Rumors: Giants, Cardinals Have Giancarlo Stanton Trade Frameworks In Place

MLB Rumors: Giants, Cardinals Have Giancarlo Stanton Trade Frameworks In Place

Miami Marlins right fielder and 2017 National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton.

Earlier on Sunday, SiriusXM's Craig Mish reported that the Giants and Cardinals are "in the dark" as to whether Stanton would waive his no-trade clause and accept a deal to either team. In fact, previous suggestions were that the Giants themselves might be favored to land the slugger. Heyman cited a source who said the Giants would "100 percent" be Stanton's preferred choice if he had to pick between them and the Cardinals.

Deep down, Giancarlo Stanton wants to be a Dodger. Had Stanton met without the trade framework in place, the Marlins would have risked losing leverage if Stanton agreed to one deal and not the other, according to Morosi. They were a "longshot", according to the report. Per MLBPipeline.com, those are the Giants' second-, third- and fourth-rated prospects, respectively.

Stanton has been aware of the possibility of a trade for months.

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.

Stanton has 10 years and $295 million left on his contract, which includes an opt-out following the 2020 season. This story was not subject to the approval of Major League Baseball or its clubs.
