Former Auburn High standout and current highly-touted San Francisco Giants prospect Tyler Beede is being mentioned as an integral part of a proposed trade for Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton.
According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network and FOXSports, the Marlins would accept a trade of Stanton to receive Beede, second baseman Joe Panik, and outfielder prospect Chris Shaw.
Stanton hit 59 homeruns and drove in 132 runs last season on his way to win the National League MVP. He is currently signed through 2027 after signing a massive 13-year, $325 million contract in 2014.
According to multiple reports, the Giants are willing to take on Stanton’s entire salary in the deal.
Beede, born in Worcester, is a pitcher for the Giants’ AAA-affiliate Sacramento River Cats. This fall, Beede played with the Scottsdale Scorpions in the Arizona Fall League.
In 2014, Beede was drafted in the first round by the Giants. He had previously been drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2011, but instead decided to attend Vanderbilt.
In 2017, Beede finished 6-7 with a 4.79 ERA and 83 strikeouts over 109 innings.
