It 'Sounds A Lot' Like Giancarlo Stanton Will Be Traded

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.

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.

Stay tuned.
