The San Francisco Giants reportedly are making the first real push to get Giancarlo Stanton.
Executives from the Giants are in Los Angeles to meet with the Miami Marlins slugger’s representatives, according to Sirius’ Craig Mish, citing a source.
The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal confirmed the report.
Earlier Thursday, a report came out with a potential package the Giants would offer in order to send Stanton to San Francisco.
And as Rosenthal mentions, Stanton does have a full no-trade clause. Reports have frequently circulated, however, that he would enjoy going out west because he grew up in Los Angeles.
Stanton, a right fielder, hit .281 this season with the Marlins while clubbing 59 homers.
As a result, there have been no shortage of teams trying to put a package together for the reigning National League MVP’s services, but this news marks the first time some real traction has been made.
