MIAMI - It may not be an entire foot, but it appears Giancarlo Stanton has at least stuck a toe or two out the door of the Marlins clubhouse.

MLB.com reports Stanton's representatives have given the Marlins a list of teams to which he'd be willing to accept a trade.

The report claims the Dodgers are at, or near the top of Stanton's wish list as the National League MVP grew up in Southern California. No other team has been revealed to be on the list.

However, trading a Marlins uniform for one with the Dodgers script logo is not easy due to salary concerns. With Los Angeles expected to exceed the luxury tax threshold next season, Stanton's massive $295 million bill would force the team to pay an exorbitant amount to bring on the perennial All-Star.

If a Stanton deal to the Dodgers was completed, the report mentions Yasiel Puig as part of the package that could be sent to Miami.

The MLB.com report adds that Stanton has yet to formally reject any trade offer presented to him.
