Dodgers and Marlins in contact for possible Giancarlo Stanton trade

The Los Angeles team seems interested in the slugger

In the last few days, the market has been very quiet.

As is well known, Giancarlo Stanton is the 'big star' of the market and the Miami Marlins are very willing to negotiate for their star, especially because of his massive contract.

According to MLB Network's Jon Morosi, the Dodgers and Marlins have had discussions about a Stanton trade. But, he assures that the talks have not gotten anywhere so far.

San Francisco Giants and S. Louis Cardinals, seem to remain the favorites to land the services of the 2017 NL MVP.

Morosi indicates that the Dodgers are his first choice and would be hard to convince of any other destination.

Stanton has a Full-No-Trade clause, which could leave some teams out of the running despite their actions.

Red Sox, also appears as one of the possible teams that can fight for Stanton.

Which to many, Boston is a kind of "dark-horse" since they are one of the few teams that could take on all of the slugger's contract worth $295 million over 10 years.

But, one big problem in any trade for the outfielder is his opt-out clause for 2020, which has stopped teams from using their best prospects in talks.

Stanton, recorded the best season in his career, smashing a total of 59 homers with 132 RBIs.
