Giancarlo Stanton could be on the way out of Miami if the Marlins are given the right offer.
Giancarlo Stanton is one of the top young power hitters in the league. At just 23 years old, he has played in four major league seasons and has accumulated a total of 96 home runs in his short career.
Stanton has gotten off to a rough start this season, hitting .227 with three home runs and nine RBI in 20 games played. His on-base percentage is still at a respectable .341, as he has drawn 12 walks in the few games he has played this season.
Stanton has an injury that he is currently struggling through, and he may not return to Miami's lineup until June. While his injury should be of some concern, there are still plenty of reasons that he would make sense for the Rangers.
Miami may be willing to part with Stanton, who will be up for his first year of arbitration at the end of this season. Trading him could bring in a nice group of prospects for the Marlins, who don't look to be heading to the playoffs anytime soon.
There are already have some reports that have linked the Rangers to Stanton. Don't be surprised if you see the young slugger in a Rangers uniform after the deadline, barring any health issues.
