Report: Panik Not Offered in Stanton Talks

By Chandler Guadagjnin

Last week, it was reported that the Giants official offer for the Marlin’s Giancarlo Stanton included RHP Tyler Beede, OF Chris Shaw and 2B Joe Panik.

Now,another report from veteran MLB reporter, Bob Nightingale, has surfaced. It states that when the Giants’ front office heard the report they were “guffawed”. Instead Nightingale said that ” fringe-type guys” were most likely offered. Yet just another chapter in the thriller that is the ‘Stanton Sweepstakes’.

The market has seemingly narrowed to the Giants and Cardinals.
