If Giancarlo Stanton is going to go to the St. Louis Cardinals or San Francisco Giants, his approval is the only thing that needs to happen.
According to Jon Morosi of the MLB Network, the Miami Marlins have worked a deal out with both teams. Now, it’s just a matter of him waiving his no-trade clause.

Recent reports have indicated that the reigning National League MVP would prefer San Francisco to St. Louis. A potential Stanton trade will send shockwaves through MLB. Once it happens, expect to see more of this year’s top free agents signing.
