Giancarlo Stanton has reportedly narrowed the list of places he’d accept a trade, and the two biggest frontrunners have been left off. Per reporting from The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, Stanton is now focusing on the Dodgers and Yankees—and not the Giants or Cardinals. Craig Mish of SiriusXM reported that the Astros and Cubs were also on the list, though perhaps not quite as high, while corroborating Rosenthal’s reports that San Francisco and St. Louis were absent. Rosenthal emphasizes that Stanton’s list can change at any time, and neither the Giants nor Cardinals have been permanently eliminated. But it’s still a sign that Stanton is unwilling to mess around here, winnowing down the possibilities that aren’t among his very top choices.
