The right fielder has a full no-trade clause as part of the 13-year, $325 million contract he signed with Miami in 2014.

Earlier on Sunday, SiriusXM's Craig Mish reported that the Giants and Cardinals are "in the dark" as to whether Stanton would waive his no-trade clause and accept a deal to either team.

According to reports and sources, San Francisco's package of prospects who could be involved in a deal for Stanton include outfielder/first baseman Chris Shaw, right-hander Tyler Beede and outfielder Heliot Ramos. The Los Angeles Dodgers have also been linked with interest in Stanton.

The Dodgers' president of baseball operations, Andrew Friedman, is monitoring the Stanton talks with other teams and is aware that an opportunity might emerge over time, according to ESPN. The Dodgers are enamored with Stanton's power, but are concerned about the luxury-tax implications of trading for him.

It was believed the Marlins wouldn't have given either team clearance to speak with Stanton or his agency (Wasserman Group) if deals, or at least frameworks for deals, weren't in place.

The Miami Marlins have agreed to the "general framework" of trades with the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants to move 2017 National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton, MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported Sunday. "Another opined that he'd 100 percent' take the Giants over the Cardinals if that's the choice", Heyman noted. He wants to hear what teams have to say as he could be on the move from the cost-cutting Marlins.
