SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton will not waive his no-trade clause to come to the San Francisco Giants, the team announced on Friday afternoon.
The Giants had a deal in place with the Marlins to acquire the superstar slugger, but Stanton had other plans.
Reports said Stanton would only approve a trade to the Los Angeles Dodgers, Houston Astros, Chicago Cubs, and New York Yankees.
None of those teams is close to a deal as of Friday.
Here is a statement from the Giants:
“Our agreement with the Marlins to acquire Giancarlo Stanton subject to his waiving of the no-trade clause will not move forward and it is our understanding that the Marlins and Stanton are exploring other options.”
Stanton hit 59 home runs in 2017 and is the reigning National League MVP.
