Marlins GM Dan Jennings said Sunday that Stanton will not be available for trade this offseason, ESPN's Jim Bowden reports. "[Stanton] will be in right field at Marlins Park on Opening Day," Jennings said. "We are building around him."
Despite the team's many needs, it sounds like Miami will hold onto Stanton rather than ship him for several prospects. The 23-year-old hit .249/.365/.480 with 24 homers and 62 RBI in 116 games this season, and the franchise needs his star power to attract fans to the recently-built Marlins Park.
