Miami Marlins: Giancarlo Stanton trade, where are they now?
The Miami Marlins made one of the biggest trades in the franchise’s history back on December 11, 2017 when the club sent outfielder Giancarlo Stanton and cash to the New York Yankees in exchange for three players.
One of the greatest players in Marlins history, Stanton was one of the top overall players in baseball at the time, as well as also coming off of the greatest single season’s the organization has ever seen back in 2017.
Winning the NL MVP award, the-then 27-year-old Stanton led the MLB in home runs (59) and RBI’s (132) during the 2017 season, as well as also leading the NL with a .631 SLG% and a 169 OPS+. Just a small glimpse into the impact that Stanton had during his time in Miami, the four-time All-Star and two-time Silver Slugger winner also currently leads the franchise all-time in multiple statistical categories across his 986 career games (third in Marlins history) such as WAR (35.7), SLG% (.554), HR (267), RBI (672), and more.
Having had success during his time with the Yankees so far, Stanton will be entering year No. 5 in New York in 2022. As for the three players the Marlins received for Stanton, where are they now?

Electing free agency at the end of 2019, Castro would sign with the Washington Nationals where he would appear in a combined 103 games in 2020-21 before being released last-September.
Guzman would be rated as high as Miami’s No. 4 overall prospect back in 2018, and would also spend 2019-20 in the Marlins Top 30 prospects before making his major league debut in a relief appearance in 2020. After making a total of 11 appearances in 2021 (nine in Triple-A), the right-hander would elect free agency back in November, and recently signed with the San Francisco Giants.
The final player that the Miami Marlins acquired in the Stanton trade was Devers, who was rated as the No. 25 prospect in Miami’s system back in 2018. Rising as high as the Marlins No. 13 prospect in both 2019-20, the 22-year-old made his major league debut with Miami during the 2021 season slashing .244/.304/.317 across 21 games.
