Giancarlo Stanton reps, San Francisco Giants executives met Thursday

MLB


Representatives for the San Francisco Giants and slugger Giancarlo Stanton were meeting in Los Angeles on Thursday night as the Giants hoped to get an idea on whether the Miami Marlins star might approve a trade there, sources confirmed to ESPN’s Buster Olney.

The meeting comes with the approval of the Marlins, in light of Major League Baseball tampering rules; it could not happen otherwise.

Stanton, the 2017 home run champion, needs to waive his no-trade clause in order for a deal to go through. He is owed $295 million over the final decade of his record $325 million, 13-year contract.

Stanton wants to hear what teams have to say as he could be on the move from the cost-cutting Marlins.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals are among the team that also have been linked to the reigning NL MVP.

The Marlins are under new ownership. Derek Jeter, who became the team’s chief executive officer when the group headed by venture capitalist Bruce Sherman bought the team last month, said earlier this month that Miami must cut payroll and is listening to offers for its longtime star.

SiriusXM radio host Craig Mish first reported news of the meeting between reps from Stanton and the Giants.
