It’s sounding like the slugger will be traded this offseason.
Giancarlo Stanton could be on the move this offseason.
The Miami Marlins’ All-Star slugger is coming off the best season of his career, leading the MLB in home runs, but the franchise could be looking to rebuild.
Stanton, 27, has a massive contract and is value might not get any higher than it is now.
Sounds a lot like Giancarlo Stanton will be traded.

Derek Jeter, who’s part of Miami’s new ownership group, was non-committal when asked about Stanton’s future today.
“I don’t know [Stanton] well,” Jeter told reporters. “I haven’t spoken to the players. I haven’t spoken to him. Anything we’re going to do moving forward with the organization, I will discuss with [team president Mike Hill].”
It doesn’t sound like Stanton would be against a trade, either.
“I don’t want to rebuild. … I’ve lost for seven years,” he told FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman.
