The Marlins have stated that they’re not shopping young slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who is still inexpensive and the last consistent source of offensive production on their active roster.
Of course, that hasn’t stopped teams from calling.
A major league source told Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe this weekend that “the Phillies, Red Sox, Yankees, Orioles, Cubs and many more” have inquired about Stanton since that blockbuster trade with the Blue Jays was made public. But Cafardo notes that commissioner Bud Selig is “watching the Marlins closely” and “may not look to fondly upon a deal for the Marlins’ biggest draw.”
Stanton, who just turned 23 years old, batted .290/.361/.608 with 37 home runs and 86 RBI in 123 games this past season for Miami. If the Fish do deal him, they’ll want a loaded package of prospects in return.
