Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton won’t be easy to move this offseason, mostly due to his mammoth contract, but it’s not stopping teams from kicking the tires on landing baseball’s homerun King.

The San Francisco Giants are reportedly “a very early favorite” to eventually haul in Stanton and “are viewed among the preferred destinations”, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

Heyman’s report also mentioned teams like the St. Louis Cardinals and the Philadelphia Phillies as other interested teams.

Stanton put up monster numbers in what is arguably his best season yet posting .281/.376/.631, 59 home runs and 132 RBI.
