Giants, Stanton reps meet in LA

As Morosi has noted, Stanton carries the weight of a full no-trade clause as part of his 13-year, $325 million contract, which was inked with the Marlins in 2014.

As of Sunday afternoon, one source said Stanton had not informed Miami of a decision.

Giancarlo Stanton has control over where he is traded.

Representatives for the and slugger were meeting in Los Angeles on Thursday night as the Giants hoped to get an idea on whether the star might approve a trade there, sources confirmed to ESPN's Buster Olney.

The Giants have reportedly offered second baseman Joe Panik, two promising minor leaguers (right-hander Tyler Beede and first baseman Chris Shaw) and two first-round draft choices for Stanton, who won the NL MVP honors while hitting 59 home runs with 132 RBIs last season.

It was believed the Marlins wouldn't have given either team clearance to speak with Stanton or his agency (Wasserman Group) if deals, or at least frameworks for deals, weren't in place.

It's unclear what Miami would target in a trade with the Cardinals, and the deal may prove to be a nonstarter.

Stanton has been aware of the possibility of a trade for months.

The Dodgers' best bet might be waiting for Stanton to force the Marlins' hand, if Los Angeles is in fact his preferred destination, and to take advantage of Miami's desperation to unload as much of that contract as possible.

The meeting comes with the approval of the Marlins, in accordance with Major League Baseball's tampering rules; it could not happen otherwise.
