Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that new Marlins owners Bruce Sherman and Derek Jeter plan to cut the team's 2018 payroll to around $90 million.
The Marlins' payroll was a franchise-record $115 million in 2017 and is currently projected to be around $140 million in 2018 when factoring in impending raises. That means a lot of changes are coming, with a trade of Giancarlo Stanton and the $295 million remaining on his contract looking possible, if not probable. Marcell Ozuna, Christian Yelich and Dee Gordon are some other players Miami might look to move. Oct 13 - 2:48 PM

Sources tell Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports that the Giants, Cardinals, and Phillies were the "most aggressive" pursuers for Giancarlo Stanton this summer.

More clubs are sure to join the mix when trade talks pick up this winter. It sounds like a near certainty that Stanton is going to be moved before the 2018 season, with new ownership looking to cut costs in Miami and fully restructure the organization. Stanton was able to avoid the disabled list in 2017 and finished with a stellar .281/.376/.631 batting line, 59 home runs, and 132 RBI in 159 games. The 27-year-old is owed $285 million on a mega-contract that runs through 2027. He also carries full no-trade protection, so he'll have a say in his destination.

Giancarlo Stanton finished 2-for-5 with an RBI single in the Marlins' loss to the Braves on Sunday.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly batted Stanton leadoff in this one to give the slugger his best chance at reaching 60 home runs, but it didn't come to fruition. Stanton did, however, hit the hardest ball ever tracked by Statcast (122.2 mph) in the bottom of the third. The 27-year-old MVP candidate finishes the 2017 season with a .281/.376/.631 batting line, 59 homers, and 132 RBI in 159 games. There is growing chatter that he will be traded this winter.

Giancarlo Stanton will bat leadoff for the Marlins on Sunday as the team looks to get him as many plate appearances as possible in his quest for 60 home runs.

The slugger enters the final day of the season sitting on 59 bombs. Unsurprisingly, Stanton has never batted leadoff in his career, but these are special circumstances. The Braves will be sending left-hander Max Fried to the hill against the Marlins and Stanton, who is batting .315/.444/.766 with 15 longballs over 153 plate appearances versus southpaws this season.
