News: Stanton will make just $6.5 million in the first year of his record $325 million, 13-year contract with the Miami Marlins. The deal with the All-Star outfielder, to be formally announced at a news conference Wednesday, includes a $25 million club option for 2028 with a $10 million buyout. Impact: Stanton will earn $107 million over the first six seasons of the deal, according to contract information obtained by The Associated Press. He then can opt out within four days of the end of the 2020 World Series, just around the time of his 31st birthday, and become a free agent.(STATS, 6:20pm)

News: Stanton agreed to terms Monday on a $325 million, 13-year contract, Marlins' owner Jeffrey Loria said. It's the most lucrative deal for an American athlete and averages $25 million per season. Impact: Stanton, who turned 25 on Nov. 8, is perhaps the game's most feared slugger. He has 154 career homers, including 37 this year, despite playing home games in spacious Marlins Park.

News: Stanton and the Marlins are closing in on a deal worth $325 million over 13 years -- including an opt-out window after five years, CBS Sports reports. Impact: In addition to being able to opt out at age 30, Stanton will have a full no-trade clause as well. The contract is the largest in North American sports history -- passing the $275-million contract that Alex Rodriguez received from the Yankees at age-32. The Marlins have not confirmed the deal, but it's expected to become official at some point later this week.(RotoWire, )

News: Stanton and the Marlins are discussing a deal that would be for at least 10 years and at least $300 million, reports. "We're having continual dialogue," Marlins GM Dan Jennings said Thursday. "I wouldn't say we're close to anything." Impact: The proposed contract would be the largest in professional sports history, exceeding the 10-year, $292 million deal the Tigers' Miguel Cabrera signed last year. Stanton has openly questioned the commitment of the Marlins' ownership in the past, but the team took a step forward this past season (77-85), and president of baseball operations Michael Hill suggested just this week that the team may be willing to reverse its longstanding club policy of not including no-trade clauses in contracts for Stanton. The 25-year-old Stanton hit .288/.395/.555 with an NL-leading 37 homers and 105 RBI in 145 games before being hit by a pitch and suffering multiple facial fracture in mid-September.(RotoWire, )
