Dodgers in Control of San Francisco Giants Pursuit of Giancarlo Stanton

Dodgers in Control of San Francisco Giants Pursuit of Giancarlo Stanton

Sirius XM's Craig Miss reported on Thursday night that the San Francisco Giants were meeting with Stanton's agents in Los Angeles. The Marlins have to wait for Stanton to inform them whether he would accept either trade.

The Marlins have deals in place to trade Giancarlo Stanton to either the Giants and Cardinals.

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.

Stanton, who won National League MVP honors in 2017 after hitting a career-best 59 home runs, and has been heavily pursued by both the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals.

Miami is looking to slash payroll and Stanton is owed $295 million over the next 10 seasons as part of his 13-year, $325 million contract. The Dodgers have not been beating down the door for Stanton.

According to Jon Morosi of Fox Sports, the Marlins have "agreed to general framework" of deals with both the Giants and Cardinals. Obviously, it's his decision as to where he gets traded because of his full no-trade clause.

The Marlins are reportedly only willing to pick up $45 million of Stanton's contract to make the deal work.

The Giants have said they're open to exceeding the luxury-tax threshold a fourth straight year, which would come with severe penalties, but the Dodgers don't appear so open to the idea and already have plenty of capable outfielders.

Buster Olney of ESPN added, "Friends of Stanton say that in his ideal world, he'd get to play for the Los Angeles Dodgers". Second baseman Joe Panik has also been mentioned.
