The 13-year, $325 million deal he signed with the Marlins back in 2014 came complete with a full no-trade clause, so he has to approve any deal that gets done.

Team officials Bobby Evans and Brian Sabean met with the Stanton camp Thursday in Southern California to make their pitch, and Cardinals executives did the same Friday.

That backed up another report, from ESPN's Buster Olney on Friday, that said Major League Baseball would only allow San Francisco and St. Louis executives to meet with Stanton's people if the Marlins said they were closing in on a potential deal.

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

North Korea's Nuclear Test Are Spreading 'Ghost Disease' Causing Deformations, Defectors Say
Technical analysis of the missile flight is ongoing, but the U.S. official said "the North Koreans had problems with re-entry". North Korea claimed it carried out successful a missile test last week, two months after its most recent launch attempt.

Stanton has 10 years and $295 million left on his contract, which includes an opt-out following the 2020 season. The Marlins are said to have interest in second baseman Joe Panik, who won't be a free agent until 2021. New ownership, including former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, is intent on deeply cutting the team's payroll.

NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton's time with the Miami Marlins is about up - provided, anyway, he wants it to be. He also boasted a slugging percentage of.631 and was one of the long bright spots on a Miami team that is now in rebuild mode.

Between the Giants and Cardinals, Stanton might prefer San Francisco per Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.
