Marlins slugger Stanton rejects trade to Giants

MLB trade rumors Cardinals Rays talks could grow to include 3B Evan Longoria

The Miami Marlins have reportedly agreed to the framework of a deal with both teams, but the National League MVP victor seems to have his eyes on playing elsewhere.

Mish corroborated a previous report by The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal that the Dodgers and Yankees are the front-runners to land Stanton.

The Cardinals and Giants have been the biggest players in negotiations for the NL MVP.

"We had an agreement to acquire Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins, subject to him waiving his no-trade clause", Cardinals Chairman and CEO Bill DeWitt Jr. said.




The Astros likely do not have a need for Stanton considering Josh Reddick is signed up for three more years and they have George Springer in center field in addition to both Derek Fisher and Kyle Tucker presenting intriguing prospects in the future. If they can't find a deal that works, they may have to resort to moving other stars to get their payroll to a level that they feel in manageable.

If they lose out in the Stanton sweepstakes, then Longoria and other pieces could immediately help them. This would be the worst case for both sides, so expect a deal to be found sooner rather than later. Whatever the case, a trade with the Dodgers is not a deal the Marlins want to make. Ultimately, he has the power to force a trade there if the Marlins are really that intent on trading him, and perhaps they would take on more of the contract than they would like to, or the Dodgers could throw in some high-salary veterans. The Marlins finished the year with a 77-85 record.

There's still no definitive timetable for a Stanton trade, but it could easily happen during the upcoming winter meetings.

Stanton has battled injuries throughout his career, playing 120 games just twice in the last five years. Let us know in the comments!
