The Cardinals and Giants have most frequently been associated with a move for Stanton during the early part of the offseason.

According to ESPN.com, teams view Stanton's current asking price as "shockingly high" and "somewhat out of touch with reality".

However, with new owners taking over in Miami, Stanton has become subject to trade rumors. The rebuilding Marlins are looking to shed Stanton's monstrous contract with 10 years and $295 million remaining on it. Under president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman, the team has not given out a contract larger than the five-year, $80 million deal handed to closer Kenley Jansen last winter.

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

The team that offers the best package for Stanton will win over Miami. The Miami Slugger has a no-trade clause, giving him the ability to nix any deal from the Marlins. But the Marlins likely would need to swallow a significant portion of Stanton's salary in order to make that happen, as the Dodgers were penalized by Major League Baseball's luxury tax for the fifth consecutive season in 2017.
