Miami Marlins not shopping Giancarlo Stanton

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

The Miami Marlins are not shopping outfielder Giancarlo Stanton on the trade market, according to Marlins sources.

Despite all the turnover going on with the Miami Marlins, they are holding onto one player in particular. Outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is not on the trading block, according to a source in the Marlins organization. Stanton has been with the Marlins since being called up in June 2010 and in that time he has belted 93 home runs in 373 games, including 37 last season.

Stanton is currently under club control for one more season before he is eligible for arbitration. He won't have the necessary service time to file for free agency until 2016. Because of Tuesday's trade to the Toronto Blue Jays that sent players like pitcher Mark Buehrle and shortstop Jose Reyes up north, Stanton has become the face of the Marlins franchise.

Despite Stanton showing his frustration over the Marlins trade on twitter, the Marlins are shedding $160 million in payroll, which will provide them with some flexibility.
