Marlins | Giancarlo Stanton will be hard to trade

Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton (hamstring) will be tough to trade at the July trading deadline this year after injuring his hamstring, especially if he's out into June. "If they trade him in-season, they probably wouldn't get any major league talent," said one executive. "So given everything that's happened with their team and their attendance, are they really in a position to make a deal for him where they just get back prospects? Probably not. So they're better off keeping him all year and trading him in the offseason, so they're getting some major league pieces in return."

Fantasy Tip: If you're in a redraft league and were hoping for a trade of Stanton this summer, it's beginning to look like wishful thinking. Now that he's injured, you won't get much in return for him, either. You'll probably have to sit on him all year and hope he picks up where he left off before getting injured.
