The star slugger is on the move.

Giancarlo Stanton has been traded.

The Miami Marlins' All-Star slugger is coming off the best season of his career, leading the MLB in home runs, but the franchise, under new management of Derek Jeter, is looking to rebuild with a much cheaper roster.

Stanton, 27, has a massive contract and his value might not get any higher than it is now. It was the perfect time for the Marlins to trade the star, and it just so happens he'll be alongside the No. 2 home run hitter this season: Aaron Judge.

The Marlins slugger will need to complete a physical and waive his no-trade clause before the trade can be made official.

Stanton and Judge combined for 111 home runs last season, leading their respective divisions in the long ball. Now they'll combine forces alongside Gary Sanchez who knocked in 33 home runs.
