Marlins rumors: Giancarlo Stanton not available

Sarah Glenn

While the rest of the team is traded away, the young outfielder remains "untouchable".

The Miami Marlins have unloaded most of their recognizable players over the past several months, but it appears that at least one player is still off-limits. The Marlins have made it known that they have "no intention" of trading slugging outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, at least not until next year, reports Joe Frisaro of MLB.com:

Major turnover is taking place with the Marlins, but a player not being shopped is Giancarlo Stanton. The Marlins have no intention to trade their All-Star right fielder.

According to a source, the slugger pretty much remains untouchable, at least for 2013.

Stanton, 23, has one more year under team control before he is eligible for arbitration. The club could look to buy out his arbitration years with a contract extension, but no discussion has been had to this point.

The young Stanton has hit cover off the baseball for the Marlins when his knees have held up enough for him to play. The right fielder hit .290/.361/.608 with a team-leading thirty-seven home runs in just one hundred twenty-three games this year, and has ninety-three long balls in his first three big-league seasons overall.
