Deal reportedly in place to send Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton to Yankees

According to FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman, the Miami Marlins have agreed on a deal to send outfielder Giancarlo Stanton to the New York Yankees.

What It Means:

The deal hasn't been made official yet, but Miami's return is expected to be second baseman Starlin Castro along with a few prospects, none of which have been identified yet. Stanton is fully expected to approve the trade to New York, having named the Yankees as one of the teams he would be willing to be traded to despite his no-trade clause. There's been no word on if the Marlins will pay any of the money remaining on the slugger's 13-year, $325 million contract.

In 2017, Stanton led the majors with 59 home runs. He slashed .281/.376/.631 and finished the year 5th among all hitters with a 3.80 nERD.
