Reports have swirled about the Marlins' willingness to shop Giancarlo Stanton for a significant package, but according to the Miami Herald (via HardballTalk), the Fish have no plans to move their young star.
A source told the Herald that the Marlins are not moving Stanton and that they haven't even discussed it internally.
Stanton, 23, hit 37 home runs last season in 123 games and already has 93 career home runs.
Braves still interested in Bourn?
Braves GM Frank Wren told ESPN's Jim Bowden (via HardballTalk) that even after they signed B.J. Upton, the Braves never closed the door on bringing back free-agent outfielder Michael Bourn.
Bowden tweeted: "Frank Wren Braves GM told us that they've never closed the door on Michael Bourn."
Wren also informed Bowden: "Frank Wren told us that if they were to sign Bourn they would consider it a 'toss up' on who would play CF and who would play LF."
Bourn stole 42 bases last season with Atlanta and scored 96 runs.
McCann unlikely to get in-season extension
Brian McCann is fresh off shoulder surgery and one of his worst years as a major-leaguer, so the chances of the catcher receiving an extension during the 2013 season are slim.
In fact, Wren told Jim Duquette of MLB Network Radio (via HardballTalk) that he and McCann have decided to hold off any discussions until after the 2013 campaign.
Last season, McCann set career-lows in batting average (.230), on-base percentage (.300) and slugging percentage (.399). His 20 home runs were also his worst total since 2007.
