Giants Have ‘Strongest Interest’ In Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton

Published

The Miami Marlins may have some options if they are looking to trade off slugger Giancarlo Stanton.

Stanton’s contract, a monstorous 13-year, $325 million contract that will take him through his age-37 season, has been considered as the biggest hurdle to clear in order to move the home run leader.

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals, Philadelphia Phillies and the Texas Rangers have inquired about Stanton with the Giants expressing what was called the “strongest interest”.

Stanton is putting on a show this season and it is likely driving up interest in his sevices despite the financial handcuffs as he is hitting .296 with 50 home runs and 108 RBI in just 127 games.

“He’s locked in right now in a way that people may think is extraordinary, but for me, I view it as ordinary,” Marlins president David Samson said in the report. “This is the Giancarlo who we know. He wants to be the best.

“So the recent surge people are calling historic, I think it’s something he’s super capable of doing for another decade, at least.”

“He’s the type of guy in his prime, that he stays healthy, you’re talking about the first Marlins Hall of Famer, in my mind. That’s what we thought about when we signed him, but who knows what tomorrow brings?”

The Marlins will have some suitors and more are likely to emerge as Stanton’s impressive season rolls on.
