TEAMS: Miami Marlins
The Miami Marlins conducted one of the great fire sales in MLB history over the winter, but star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is “not going anywhere,” according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Teams can dream if they like. But I heard the 3 defining words from miami on @giancarlo818again: "not going anywhere." — Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) February 20, 2013 Following Miami’s initial purge, which sent players such as Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle and Emilio Bonifacio to the Toronto Blue Jays, the club said it was not considering trading Stanton. Some were skeptical of the announcement, considering the team had dumped basically everything else of value and the displeasure Stanton displayed toward the franchise after the move. However, it appears the Marlins are not currently inclined to deal Stanton, who won’t reach free agency until 2017. The slugger instantly became the sole face of the franchise, and represents a perennial All-Star and MVP candidate. While Miami may consider trading him for prospects down the road, it looks as if the 23-year-old will be with the team for the 2013 season. Last year, Stanton hit .290/.361/.608 with 30 doubles and 37 home runs over 501 plate appearances. He owns a career batting line of .270/.350/.553 over parts of three seasons in the majors.
