Major League Baseball trade rumors: Marlins place 'shockingly high' asking price on Giancarlo Stanton

"Some rival execs view the Marlins' prospect asking price for Giancarlo Stanton as shockingly high and somewhat out of touch with reality, and not discounted almost enough given the whopping $295 million he's owed (with the forthcoming out clause after the 2020 season)", Olney tweets.

Buster Olney of ESPN reports today that "some rival execs view the Marlins' prospect asking price for Giancarlo Stanton as shockingly high: and "somewhat out of touch with reality".

Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald cautions Red Sox and Cardinals fans not to start planning a welcoming party for Stanton.

That could change as the winter takes shape, and the Dodgers gauge the intentions of the new front office of the Marlins, who have made trading the four-time All-Star outfielder a priority. But in their efforts to shed salary, the Marlins are reportedly looking to deal their slugger and the $295 million owed to him over the next 10 years.

Stanton does have a player option for 2021 and beyond, although it is unlikely he would opt out of such a lucrative contract.

The teams thought to be most interested in Stanton include St. Louis, San Francisco and Boston.

A native of Los Angeles, Stanton led the majors with 59 home runs this past season.

Miami has struggled to surround him with top-tier talent, however, resulting in the Marlins' 77-85 record last season.
