Giancarlo Stanton rumors: Representatives of Marlins slugger meeting with San Francisco Giants

Both the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants have been linked to Stanton as much as any other team, the Dodgers included. The 13-year, $325 million deal he signed with the Marlins back in 2014 came complete with a full no-trade clause, so he has to approve any deal that gets done.

Multiple sources said the Marlins have agreed upon the general framework of a Stanton trade with both San Francisco and St. Louis. Olney also reported that Stanton's representatives received approval to meet with the Cardinals. 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. Their luxury-tax issues would complicate a potential trade for the slugger. MLB.com reported the Dodgers were the only team Stanton would be willing to accept a trade to, without further consideration.

Stanton has 10 years and $295 million left on his contract, which includes an opt-out following the 2020 season. 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.

The error caused the scheduling system to show that the airline had sufficient crew for some flights when it did not. Out of the 200,000 flights American will operate in December, only a few hundred are now unassigned to pilots.

Stanton, a four-time All-Star, has launched 267 homers in eight seasons with the Marlins.

According to reports and sources, San Francisco's package of prospects who could be involved in a deal for Stanton include outfielder/first baseman Chris Shaw, right-hander Tyler Beede and outfielder Heliot Ramos.
