MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami Marlins fire sale got rid of most of the talent on the team. Now, multiple teams are inquiring about the availability of the Marlins’ only star player left, right fielder Giancarlo Stanton.

Officially, the Marlins have repeatedly said they have no interest in trading Stanton. But, as with anything the Marlins officially say, that should be taken with a grain of salt.

According to the Boston Globe, the Philadelphia Phillies, Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, Baltimore Orioles, Chicago Cubs, and others have contacted the Marlins about the availability of Stanton.

The Globe said Major League Baseball is “watching the Marlins closely” and if the team did strike a deal for Stanton, the Marlins would likely have to receive a lot of talent in return.

Stanton, who tweeted during the recent fire sale of talent that he was “pissed off,” is just 23 years old and was the Marlins lone All-Star last season. He battled injuries in 2012, but still hit .290 with 37 home runs and 86 RBI’s in 123 games.

The Marlins are not likely to trade Stanton, at least any time soon, because he’s extremely cheap compared to other superstars and is essentially all that stands between the Marlins being a Major League team and a Triple-A team.
