Marlins shopping Giancarlo Stanton to Padres for Gyorko and 2 prospects

Robert Mayer-US PRESSWIRE

Just when it looked like the Padres had nothing cooking on the Hot Stove the rumors and grease start to fly.

We learn from Bill Center of the Union-Tribune that the Marlins asked about some of the Padres' top prospects when shopping Giancarlo Stanton. He fell out of favor after criticizing the club and but it was thought that they were unlikely to trade him.

Bill Center:

The price would be steep. But the Marlins earlier asked the Padres about the availability of infielder Gyorko. It would take at least Gyroko and two other prospects the Marlins could control for six seasons – possibly either Liriano or Hedges plus a pitcher.

Again, the Marlins at this point have just been floating Stanton’s name. There have been no detailed talks between the Marlins and Padres.

I'm intrigued. Stanton can mash, but for three of their Top 10 Prospects? That's the farm system. I'm glad I don't have to make these decisions. I'd probably be so stressed I'd end up wetting the bed...for the first time... as far as you know.

UPDATE

Corey Brock says there is no chance of this happening.

Simply put, the Marlins "are not moving him," according to a source I spoke with. They haven't even "discussed" it internally. The team's plans calling for Stanton to start the season with the club and occupy the clean-up spot have "not changed at all," according to another source with knowledge of the Marlins' intentions.

And yet the speculation continues. The latest report indicates the Marlins have spoken to the Padres about Stanton. "Completely off base" and "totally ridiculous" was the response I received when I asked about it.
