Pieces in place for possible Stanton trade
Giants GM Bobby Evans confirmed on a San Francisco radio station that the club has reached the parameters of a potential trade for Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton. Evans said San Francisco executives gathered with the NL MVP and his representatives in “a good meeting ” last week. “Our hope is that if he does choose to come here, we’ll be able to fold him in with a winning club,” Evans said. Marlins CEO Derek Jeter said Tuesday Miami has not decided whether to trade Stanton, still owed US$295 million from his 13-year contract.
