Marlins Update on Giancarlo Stanton
Every couple months there?s a new report about how the Marlins aren?t planning to trade Giancarlo Stanton, so here?s the latest: Joe Frisaro of MLB.com talked to a ?plugged-in MLB source? who doesn?t see ?any scenario? in which they trade the 23-year-old outfielder.
Frisaro writes that the Marlins are hesitant to offer Stanton a big long-term contract because ?there are reservations? due to his injury history. Which is pretty odd, considering his missed time this year was due to a hamstring injury and he?s played 93 of a possible 96 games since returning from the disabled list.
