As time goes by, more and more information about the details of the Giancarlo Stanton trade to the New York Yankees come out.
According to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, the Marlins will get Starlin Castro and two prospects, while the Yankees get Stanton and take on $265 million of the $295 million remaining on his contract.

The Marlins weren't expected to get top prospects, and according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, Miami is receiving minor leaguers Jose Guzman and Jose Devers.
The minor leaguers #Marlins are getting are Jorge Guzman and Jose Devers, who is Rafael Devers' cousin.— Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) December 9, 2017
Guzman, 21, is a right-handed pitcher who made 13 starts in the New York-Penn League and posted a 2.30 ERA and had 88 strikeouts over 66.2 innings. He possesses an electric fastball and has high upside.
Devers, 18, is the cousin of Boston Red Sox phenom Rafael Devers. He appeared in 53 games at two different levels, including Gulf Coast League, and hit .245 with one home run, 16 RBI and 16 stolen bases.
Both of these prospects are far away from the big leagues, but they have high upside and could be top prospects down the road. As for the Yankees, they've gotten their man and truly didn't give up much for him.
Brian Cashman has done it again.
