Major League Baseball's general managers' meetings are less than two days away, with the hot stove set to ignite November 13-16 in the Sunshine State, Orlando, Florida. While the club will aim to sure-up its pitching staff and perhaps discuss trades surrounding one of their utility infielders, Maikel Franco, Freddy Galvis and/or Cesar Hernandez, improving the offense will also always be up for consideration.

But MLB Network's Jon Morosi on Friday reported that the Marlins finally have kicked the tires on a potential Stanton trade.

Xi noted his meeting with the South Korean leader marked a turnaround in South Korea-China relations. The two leaders last met in July in Berlin, on the sidelines of the Group of 20, or G-20, summit.

Morosi points out that the Phillies are uniquely suited to take on the remainder of Stanton's 13-year, $325 million contract, as they now have a $6.35 million payroll heading into the 2018 season. Stanton's salary will go up by over $10 million next season to $25 million, and will peak at $32 million per season beginning in the 2023 campaign, according to data provided by Spotrac.

Stanton led the majors with 59 home runs and 132 RBIs during 2017 while the Red Sox ranked last in the American League with 168 home runs.
