On the other hand, Stanton did sign a 13-year deal with Miami with a no-trade clause that would have kept him in town through at least 2027. "We can't just continue to dig a bigger hole". It would have been OK to say that, to admit that the organization needed to do the best it could, but that the priority immediately is getting the financial house in order.

"I told him, 'When we acquired this team, our thoughts were that you were going to be with us,"' Jeter said from baseball's winter meetings in Orlando, Fla.

More Marlins deals are possible at the winter meetings.

Los Angeles, though, didn't seem aggressive in their pursuit of Stanton after ending last season with a reported industry-high $244 million United States payroll, and have $165 million committed to 11 players in 2018. We're still trying to figure Boston out. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said he dealt only with Hill, and Jeter dismissed the idea that trading his franchise player to his old team might have felt odd for him.

"I'm very excited to be here and be part of the Yankees. My feeling was to try to make the Miami Marlins organization better, and that was the No. 1 priority". "We think we got some good prospects in return".

Dealing from their low minors appealed to the Yankees, whose ascendance last season has restored their image as free-spending favorites.

Aaron Boone walked into a pretty great situation upon becoming the new manager of the New York Yankees.

The Marlins, with former Yankees star Derek Jeter as their new CEO, are expected to send $30 million U.S. to the Yankees if Stanton doesn't exercise his right to opt out of his contract and become a free agent after the 2020 season. "We did all our homework on Stanton", Dombrowski said.

As miserable as Stanton found his Marlins existence, he said he "was not going to be forced to do" something under threat. Judge - who has used Stanton as a role model as a baseball player with a football player's body - did not even know who the Yankees would give up.

"He's one of our leaders, " Cashman said, "despite being so young". "This is exciting. If could you pull that off, that would be wonderful".

Jeter, whose number is retired by the Yankees, scoffed at the suggestion that he wanted to help his former club, which is backed up by the fact that he and the team have had barely any relationship since he retired, except for some Monument Park ceremonies honoring him and some of his teammates.
