Giancarlo Stanton, Casey McGehee not on trade market, Marlins GM says

Tuesday July 8th, 2014

The Miami Marlins will not be trading All-Star outfielder Giancarlo Stanton or third baseman Casey McGehee, team GM Dan Jennings told USA Today's Bob Nightengale.

As the trade season starts to take shape with the All-Star Game approaching, the Marlins duo will apparently be staying put in Florida. Stanton, 24, who will play in his second All-Star Game next Tuesday, leads the National League with 21 home runs and 62 RBI. McGehee, 31, is hitting .322 for the Marlins.

After ruling out a Stanton trade, Jennings bluntly said McGehee won't be dealt.

"He ain't going nowhere, either," Jennings said.

At 43-46, the third place Marlins are six games behind the Braves in the NL East. The trade deadline is July 31.
