Stanton Agreed to be Traded to the Yankees — TIME OUT


The Marlins had deals with the Giants and Cardinals, who met with Stanton and his representatives in person, but those deals fell through when Stanton did not waive his no-trade clause.

If Stanton doesn't opt out, as Wolfe claims will be the case, the Yankees will receive $30 million from the Marlins, according to multiple reports.

The Yankees could also save $13 million from their balance sheet if they are able to trade Gardner or third baseman Chase Headley, who are entering the final year of their contracts.

As for why not St. Louis or San Francisco?

Throughout the Stanton trade saga, the Marlins dealt from a position of weakness. The enormity of Stanton's contract combined with his no-trade clause left the team with little leverage in negotiations with other clubs. I thought our lineup was legit, and we needed help with our pitchers, and we needed to add rather than subtract. The worst offenders will also be docked more valuable draft picks if they sign free agents, will be slotted down 10 spots for their first pick in the draft and could lose as much as $1 million in global pool money. And it's also not clear that the Yankees would necessarily end up with Harper or Machado, so this was a way to hedge their bets.

The slugger said goodbye to the team and fan base in an Instagram post on Monday afternoon after the deal sending him to the Yankees became official. The team is also still on the prowl this offseason as NY prepares for another championship run. So for that I give thanks, I hope there are better days in Miami.

If there's one team that doesn't merit sitting around and worrying about future payroll considerations, it's probably the Yankees.

Given that the Yankees were already a game away from making the World Series, this move has potential repercussions beyond the teams involved. They showed that last season's promise will be rewarded with reinforcements. What about the Jays and Josh Donaldson?

It's just the smug way both went about their business.

"To do this, we're going to have to make some moves and build this organization".

"Thank you to the Marlins Organization & the unbelievable city of Miami!" I would tell the fans: Be patient. It's not as if Miami's baseball fans haven't had a rough enough time yet, and things are certainly not looking any better in the meantime.
