Marlins Agree to Giancarlo Stanton Trade Framework With Cardinals, Giants

And if Stanton wants to play for either of those two teams, all he has to do is choose, because the Marlins have agreed to framework of trades with both the Giants and the Cards, MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported Sunday. He'd need to approve any deal because of his full no-trade clause.

As of Sunday afternoon, one source said Stanton had not informed Miami of a decision.

Meanwhile, Marlins MLB.com reporter Joe Frisaro notes that the deal is not imminent and that the Marlins are still talking with other clubs.

Scott Frost returning to Nebraska after leading UCF revival
Frost's 14th-ranked Golden Knights face No. 20 Memphis on Saturday at Noon ET for the American Athletic Conference title. At UCF, Frost amassed a record of 18-7, including an undefeated regular season.

Sirius XM's Craig Miss reported on Thursday night that the San Francisco Giants were meeting with Stanton's agents in Los Angeles. Morosi said the Marlins and Dodgers have remained in touch about the slugger, but there was been "no substantial progress". Flaherty is rated as St. Louis' No. 3 prospect, and Alcantara is ninth.

The Dodgers have been somewhat hesitant on Stanton due to their desire not to exceed the $197 million luxury tax threshold or add another nine-figure contract to the books beyond Clayton Kershaw's. "Another opined that he'd 100 percent' take the Giants over the Cardinals if that's the choice", Heyman noted. Approve a deal the Dodgers liked - for the objective 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.

The meeting comes with the approval of the Marlins, in accordance with Major League Baseball's tampering rules; it could not happen otherwise.
