SF Giants GM says they have parameters of potential Stanton trade
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Giants general manager Bobby Evans confirmed on San Francisco's flagship radio station KNBR that the club has reached the parameters of a potential trade for Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton.
Evans spoke Wednesday of the Giants' pursuit of the Marlins star, saying San Francisco executives gathered with the NL MVP and his representatives in "a good meeting" last week.
"The specifics of the deal are not something that we feel comfortable discussing, but ultimately our hope is that if he does choose to come here, we'll be able to fold him in with a winning club," Evans said Wednesday. "In terms of our deal it just has a number of contingencies, one of course that's paramount is relative to his full no trade and that's a decision that really comes from him. But our terms with the Marlins are clear."
Marlins CEO Derek Jeter said Tuesday that Miami has not decided whether to trade Stanton, still owed $295 million from his record $325 million, 13-year contract.
San Francisco was last in the NL West at 64-98.
