Giants, Cardinals 'in the Dark,' Longshot Team Out on Giancarlo Stanton

Would Andrew Mc Cutchen Be a Fit for Giants

The Marlins have to wait for Stanton to inform them whether he would accept either trade.

The Marlins have arranged possible trades of Giancarlo Stanton with the Cardinals and Giants.

Representatives for the reigning National League MVP met with the Giants and Cardinals late in the week, as each team attempted to convince Stanton to waive his no-trade clause and pave the way for a blockbuster deal. And although the Los Angeles Dodgers reportedly are Stanton's first choice, it's the St. Louis Cardinals and the San Francisco Giants that recently have emerged as the most likely landing spots.

A deal is not expected to happen today, according to MLB.com's Mark Feinsand.

As of Sunday, the Dodgers and Marlins were still in contact regarding Stanton, but have not made progress toward a deal, according to one source.

But for luxury tax reasons, the Dodgers are unable to dive completely into trade talks with the Marlins this winter.

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. The Marlins are said to have interest in second baseman Joe Panik, who won't be a free agent until 2021. The right fielder has a full no-trade clause as part of the 13-year, $325 million contract he signed with Miami in 2014.
