Giancarlo Stanton prefers Giants over Cardinals

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

Louis Cardinals have both made offers to the Miami Marlins for Giancarlo Stanton, both places he has said he would not prefer to be traded to.

Stanton has a no-trade clause and must approve any trade he is a part of.

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.

One source told MLB.com's Mark Feinsand that a Stanton deal was not expected to be completed Sunday.

A trade framework was a logical precondition for the Marlins to grant the Giants and Cardinals permission to speak with Stanton.

The Los Angeles Dodgers, according to Morosi, could still be in play as well. Approve a deal the Dodgers liked - for the goal of offloading Stanton's remaining $295 million contract (or as much of it as a team will accept) - or keep Stanton (and his mega contract) on the books. Second baseman Joe Panik has also been mentioned. Heyman cited a source who said the Giants would "100 percent" be Stanton's preferred choice if he had to pick between them and the Cardinals. But the Dodgers have luxury-tax issues and have not seriously pursued Stanton - at least not yet.

The Dodgers were still in contact with the Marlins as of Sunday, per Morosi, though the talks haven't progressed as far as those with the Giants or Cardinals.
