Giancarlo Stanton has vetoed trades that the Miami Marlins worked out with San Francisco and St. Louis, declining to waive his no-trade clause.
Shohei Ohtani, a 23-year-old Japanese right-hander with a 100 mph fastball and devastating left-handed swing, picked the Angels over six other teams, his agent said Friday.
Despite repeated warnings by MLB prior to Shohei Ohtani's decision to play for the Angels, sources told ESPN they wouldn't be surprised if there was an investigation into the process.
For these five teams that will be paying the price for extra punch through trades or free agency, S.O.S. might as well stand for Send Over Sluggers.
The Japanese star could be a great pitcher or a not-so great pitcher in MLB. As a hitter, he might have a similar range. We mix and match the projections to find the most entertaining Ohtani.
New Marlins CEO Derek Jeter said the team is "still gathering information" on potential deals for Giancarlo Stanton, adding that "anything up to this point has been speculation."
Baseball's most coveted free agent has whittled down his list of likely landing spots. We make the case for each of the seven finalists to ink the two-way Japanese superstar.
Japanese superstar Shohei Ohtani has narrowed his choice to seven teams -- the Dodgers, Angels, Padres, Giants, Mariners, Rangers and Cubs -- according to multiple reports.
Whatever they do with Giancarlo Stanton, Derek Jeter and the Marlins will have budgetary handicaps in 2018. Where do the Fish rank among teams with major financial handicaps this winter?
Representatives of slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who have met with the Giants over the past two days, have also received approval for a meeting with the Cardinals, sources told ESPN.
Adding Giancarlo Stanton would fill a lot of holes in San Francisco. But can the Giants spend their way back into contention in one offseason?
Giants executives, hoping to get an idea on whether slugger Giancarlo Stanton might approve a trade to San Francisco, met with Stanton's representatives on Thursday in Los Angeles, sources confirmed to ESPN.
The Marlins slugger reportedly could be traded before the winter meetings begin.
You could trade for Stanton and the potential $295 million left on his contract -- or just sign Martinez.
The Giants are looking at an overwhelming payroll for the foreseeable future, so the amount of long-term money on the books precludes San Francisco from embarking on a full-on rebuild.
The Giants' outfielders are aging and produced minus-42 defensive runs saved last season, sixth worst in the majors. That's a problem in spacious AT&T Park -- one that a certain free agent could help fix.
The Giants need to go all-in and bring the 2017 NL MVP to the Bay Area. Stanton is the greatest possible improvement for the outfield of one of the worst teams in need of the largest jolt in the arm.
San Francisco reportedly has "had discussions" about signing the veteran slugger, but it's unclear if the team has met with agent Scott Boras.
Hensley Meulens, who played five seasons with the Yankees and was the Giants' bench coach last season, interviewed for New York's managerial opening.
The San Francisco Giants are reportedly making the biggest early push to land Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton.
Minor league outfielder Hunter Cole has been acquired by the Texas Rangers to complete the June trade that sent reliever Sam Dyson to the San Francisco Giants.
Former Cy Young Award winner Jake Peavy reportedly has told teams he wants to pitch in 2018 after sitting out this past season.
While acknowledging that veteran Hunter Pence is "not a part-time kind of guy," Giants GM Bobby Evans said Tuesday that the team must be open to all options as it looks to upgrade its outfield.
