Giancarlo Stanton is one of the more feared sluggers in all of Major League Baseball. A highly touted prospect out of Notre Dame high school in the Los Angeles Area, Stanton was selected by the Florida Marlins in the 2nd round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft. Three years later in 2010 Stanton would make his major league debut with the Marlins who he'd go on to spend the first 8 years of his career with. In his time with the Marlins, Stanton would hit 267 Home Runs, Drive in 672, and have the highest WAR (Wins Above Replacement) all franchise records. His best season came in 2017 when he took home National League Most Valuable Player honors for slugging 59 home runs and driving in 132 runs, both career highs.

Following the trade, the Yankees would boast one of most powerful lineups in recent memory complimenting Stanton's power with fellow sluggers Aaron Judge, and Gary Sanchez_x000D_
