There’s a trade race in the MLB to get All-Star slugger Giancarlo Stanton from the the Marlins, and the San Francisco Giants are looking like the leaders.

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com tweeted the news Tuesday morning. He did add that the St. Louis Cardinals may still be in the mix.

Craig Mish of SiriusXM Radio reported Monday that the Giants and Marlins discussed one trade proposal that would send Stanton and second baseman Dee Gordon to San Francisco for second baseman Joe Panik, minor league pitcher Tyler Beede and minor league outfielder Chris Shaw.

Shaw and Beede are San Francisco’s second- and third-ranked prospects, respectively, per MLB.com.
