The defending National League champions are reportedly "in the mix" to land Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton. Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reported the news Tuesday, citing a source who said the Los Angeles Dodgers are interested in trading for him. His report comes after Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald reported Stanton wouldn't accept a trade to the St. Louis Cardinals or Boston Red Sox. Stanton has a full no-trade clause, which is one of the factors impacting a potential swap. In October, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reported the Marlins' new ownership—which includes former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter—is looking to trim the team's payroll from last season's $115 million to close to $90 million. Trading Stanton would help Miami immensely in the payroll department, but it apparently isn't looking to simply give him away for the financial relief.
