Up to Stanton: Marlins get agreements with SF, StL

But with new ownership in Miami trying to shed payroll, the remaining $295 million on Stanton's massive contract is a priority for the team to move.

FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman reported there's some doubt whether Stanton would waive his no-trade clause to go to St. Louis. That was when San Francisco reportedly became Stanton's "100 percent" preferred choice if it came down to choosing between the Giants and the Cardinals.

One team that is showing decreased interest in Stanton is the Boston Red Sox, as SiriusXM's Craig Mish reports they have made a decision to end their pursuit of him. The Dodgers are enamored with Stanton's power, but are concerned about the luxury-tax implications of trading for him.

As was assumed when the reports surfaced that Giancarlo Stanton's representatives met with executives from the Giants and Cardinals, there appear to be deals in place.

At the very least the ball is in Stanton's court, it seems. Stanton has been on losing Marlins teams in all eight of his major league seasons.

The Giants have many holes to fill including the outfield, third base and the bullpen as they try to bounce back from an embarrassing 98-loss season.

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

NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton's time with the Miami Marlins is about up - provided, anyway, he wants it to be.

Yet Stanton might be waiting for a resolution with the Dodgers before deciding between the Giants and Cardinals.
