    The Yankees officially announced Monday that Castro, Jose Devers and Jorge Guzman were traded to the Marlins in exchange for Giancarlo Stanton and cash considerations.

    Impact

    As expected, Stanton approved the deal and everything was finalized Monday morning after the players involved passed their physicals. Castro is expected to take over the second base job in Miami after Dee Gordon was traded to Seattle, though the Marlins have also flirted with the idea of flipping him for more prospects. The 27-year-old is coming off a solid 2017 campaign with the Yankees, during which he hit .300/.338/.454 with 16 homers in 112 games.

    News

    The Yankees and Marlins have agreed to a trade that would sent Giancarlo Stanton to New York for Castro and prospects, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. Stanton must still approve the deal, Jon Heyman of Fanrag Sports reports.

    Impact

    Castro would take over the second base job in Miami after Dee Gordon was traded to Seattle. The deal isn't official as Stanton needs to approve it, the players need to pass physicals and it's still unclear which prospects will be included. However, it looks like Castro will be playing in the National League next season.
