The Red Sox, of course, are just one of many teams interested in acquiring the reigning Major League Baseball home run king, with the Cardinals, Phillies and Giants already known to have had preliminary talks with the Marlins. An MLB source also told Spencer that Boston is "definitely in play" as a potential destination for Stanton. Red Sox owner John Henry and president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski confirmed as much last week.

"I would not get specific on any player but try to do our due diligence in every regard", said Dombrowski.

Stanton still has 11 years, $295 million remaining on his contract. He can opt out after the 2020 season.

Next week's General Manager Meetings could provide further clarity on just how interested the Red Sox are.

Tunisia clinch World Cup spot after draw with Libya
Other nations which also qualified for the last two editions but have been humbled are Ghana, Ivory Coast, Algeria and Cameroon. Tunisia survived some nervous moments in Rades as Libya finished strongly.


This likely is music to the ears of any fans of the Boston Red Sox, St. Louis Cardinals, San Francisco Giants or Philadelphia Phillies. Other teams could be in the mix as well, or enter the fray later.

It will be a costly addition, but whichever team trades for Stanton will instantly bolster their lineup with a 28-year-old who slashed.281/.376/.631 with 59 home runs and 132 RBI in 2017.

The Red Sox, meanwhile, are prepared to increase payroll, even to the point of exceeding the luxury tax threshold. Top among them in the free agent market are J.D. Martinez, Eric Hosmer and Carlos Santana.

Could Derek Jeter's first big move as Miami Marlins part-owner be trading away the city's home run king to his former AL East rival?
