Yesterday, there were reports that the Miami Marlins and slugger Giancarlo Stanton were discussion a deal in the range of $300 million, the most in professional sports history.
Now, the two sides have agreed on the terms of the deal - 13 years for $325 million, according to a report from CBS Sports.
The deal includes a no-trade clause and an opt-out after a number of years. According to the report, the only thing left to be determined is the language of the contract, but the terms have been finalized.
Miami had been reluctant in the past to spend a lot of money in the past, but they've made keeping Stanton a major priority. He's been the subject of numerous trade rumors and was widely expected to leave the Marlins in free agency, but now the 25-year old will be a Marlin until he's 38.
The deal averages $25 million a year and breaks the 10-year, $292 million record contract the Detroit Tigers gave Miguel Cabrera this past offseason.Back to the Miami Marlins Newsfeed
