MLB trade rumors Marlins CEO Derek Jeter says all Giancarlo Stanton talk 'speculation'
The Miami Marlins slugger is expected to decide whether or not he'll waive his no-trade clause and accept a trade to the San Francisco Giants by the end of the week, according to NBC Sports Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic. The meetings however do not necessarily indicate that a deal is close to being finalized, the meetings were more of a feeling out process for the teams involved, it was a chance to pitch the organization to Stanton, and to try to sway him into approving a deal. "We have not made many decisions on the baseball side". "But our terms with the Marlins are clear".
General manager Bobby Evans (speaking on KNBR 680) said the Giants and Miami Marlins have agreed on the framework of a deal that would send Stanton and the $295 million sticker on his carry-on bag to The Thing On King, which means that both teams have put the public onus on Stanton if this deal doesn't happen.
"He has a contract already in front of him", Evans said.
If Stanton passes on a trade to the Giants or Cardinals, then the Dodgers will be in a good spot.
