Good morning, baseball fans! Here’s what’s been going on around the game last 24 hours.
The San Francisco Giants have reportedly sent the Miami Marlins their proposal for a deal involving outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, according to Craig Mish of SiriusXM.
The Giants would reportedly send Heliot Ramos, Chris Shaw, Tyler Beede and Christian Arroyo to Miami and take on $250 million of Stanton’s remaining $295 million deal. The four prospects are the Giants’ top four according to Baseball America.
As of Tuesday, the Los Angeles Dodgers have also had conversations with Miami about Stanton, but nothing is imminent at this time.
Maitan was considered the Atlanta Braves’ top international prospect until he was stripped from the team along with other prospects by MLB two weeks ago after the team violated international signing rules. The Braves spent $4.25 million of their 2016 international bonus pool money to land the Venezuelan infielder.
The deal is reportedly worth a total of $15.5 million over two years. This comes on the heels of a solid three-year span Mikolas had in Japan.
Martin, 29, hit just .172/.232/.281 in 49 games (138 plate appearances) between the Seattle Mariners and Chicago Cubs in 2017.
The 28-year-old pitched to a 5-4 record with a 7.85 ERA in 19 games for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2017.
He was a name that was briefly tied to the Mets earlier on this offseason.
