Report: Cardinals plan to talk to Marlins about Stanton, Yelich

  Report: Cardinals plan to talk to Marlins about Stanton, Yelich The St. Louis Cardinals will reportedly make adding a quality outfielder a key part of their offseason agenda. According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals will be in search of a middle-of-the-order hitter who will slot into the outfield. With the team unwilling to pay big bucks and compete in free agency for slugger J.D. Martinez, they are more likely to seek talks with the Miami Marlins, who are likely to make at least one of Giancarlo Stanton or Christian Yelich available. The Cardinals will also be in the market for one of the many late-inning relievers available, with closer Greg Holland at the top of their list. It looks like it’s going to be a big offseason in St. Louis, as the team has been linked to another big bat as well — though perhaps a less attainable one. It’s clear that missing the playoffs for two seasons in a row has not sat well with them.

The Miami Marlins apparently have a trade partner in mind with regard to the Giancarlo Stanton sweepstakes.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Marlins view the St. Louis Cardinals as an appealing suitor in a Stanton trade. The team has many premium pitching prospects, such as Alex Reyes and Jack Flaherty. They are also believed to be willing to part with some of them to bring Stanton to St. Louis.

One big problem for the Cardinals could be the fact that Stanton may prefer a move to one of the coasts, with the Midwest less appealing to him. Stanton has a full no-trade clause, so he will have significant leverage in determining his next destination if, as expected, the Marlins opt to move him this winter.

The Cardinals are definitely interested, though we’re obviously a long way from any trade being done. Expect the Marlins to take some time assessing their options and figuring out what Stanton would be keen on.
