Giancarlo Stanton Trade Rumors: Miami Has 'Framework' of Giants, Cardinals Deals

Time and time again it has been reported that Giancarlo Stanton's top choice for his next team is the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The hold up is waiting for Stanton to let the Marlins know if he will accept a trade to either team.

Multiple sources said the Marlins have agreed upon the general framework of a Stanton trade with both San Francisco and St. Louis. 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.

Aside from the Giants, the St. Louis Cardinals and the Red Sox are the other two teams that have been most closely tied to Stanton.

Miami is looking to slash payroll and Stanton is owed $295 million over the next 10 seasons as part of his 13-year, $325 million contract. 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.

Both deals are pending Stanton's approval. They only want to try and make the Giants sweat this thing out.

One team that is showing decreased interest in Stanton is the Boston Red Sox, as SiriusXM's Craig Mish reports they have made a decision to end their pursuit of him.

The Giants have said they're open to exceeding the luxury-tax threshold a fourth straight year, which would come with severe penalties, but the Dodgers don't appear so open to the idea and already have plenty of capable outfielders.

The Marlins slugger has been a hot name this offseason after winning NL MVP honors and leading the majors with 59 home runs in 2017. Second baseman Joe Panik has also been mentioned.
