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.
