The Miami Marlins have agreed to the general framework of a trade involving star Giancarlo Stanton to the St. Louis Cardinals and the San Francisco Giants, according to MLB Network's Jon Morosi.

Bleacher Report has also said that the Giants are "100 perfect" the slugger's first choice in trade scenarios, since there is some doubt that he would actually waive his no-trade to go to St. Louis. Los Angeles, consistently among the highest-spending teams, are hesitant due in part to what Stanton's large salary - an average annual value of $25 million - would mean for their efforts to get under baseball's luxury tax threshold.

Over the past two days, representatives for Stanton have met with officials from the Giants, sources said.

It was believed the Marlins wouldn't have given either team clearance to speak with Stanton or his agency (Wasserman Group) if deals, or at least frameworks for deals, weren't in place. MLB.com reported the Dodgers were the only team Stanton would be willing to accept a trade to, without further consideration.

The Cardinals have pitching prospects the Marlins have targeted, such as right-handers Jack Flaherty and Sandy Alcantara.

By all accounts, the Giants and Cardinals remain the most aggressive pursuers, but Stanton is believed to be holding out for the Dodgers to make a realistic push.
