Giancarlo Stanton rumors: Marlins have trade framework in place with Giants, Cards

The have agreed to general framework of Stanton trades with the and, but neither deal can be completed as the Marlins wait to see if Stanton will accept either proposal, according to a Sunday afternoon report from. Approve a deal the Dodgers liked - for the goal of offloading Stanton's remaining $295 million contract (or as much of it as a team will accept) - or keep Stanton (and his mega contract) on the books.

Over the past two days, representatives for Stanton have met with officials from the Giants, sources said.

Time and time again it has been reported that Giancarlo Stanton's top choice for his next team is the Los Angeles Dodgers. 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. The Dodgers are enamored with Stanton's power, but are concerned about the luxury-tax implications of trading for him.

The ball reportedly is in Giancarlo Stanton's court.

The Giants have many holes to fill including the outfield, third base and the bullpen as they try to bounce back from an embarrassing 98-loss season.

Stanton would help the Giants in the home run department as they finished dead last in home runs in 2017.

The Marlins also want to move Dee Gordon, who's owed $38 million through 2020, and the second baseman would be a nice fit for the Giants, who lack speed.
