Derek Jeter, the CEO of the Miami Marlins, is playing it close to vest when it comes to the topic of Giancarlo Stanton, the MLB hot stove trade chip de jour.

In an appearance on the Marlins Hot Stove radio show Tuesday on 940 AM WINZ, Jeter said the Marlins are still in the exploratory phase.

“There have been no decisions (made),” Jeter said. “We have not made many decisions whatsoever on the baseball side, so we’re still gathering information.”

The famously-reserved Yankees captain steered clear of the noise swirling around Stanton and the organization.

“As soon as there’s something to share, I will be more than happy to share it," Jeter added. "But anything up to this point has been speculation and one thing I’ve always tried to do is stay far away from speculation and rumors.”

On Tuesday, 95.7 The Game’s Damon Bruce dished out an array of Stanton related items, reporting that the San Francisco Giants had met Stanton’s reps for a second time on Monday in LA and that Shohei Otani — not the Marlin right fielder — is atop the club’s wish list.
