Home may be where Giancarlo Stanton's heart is.

Sources told MLB.com's Jon Morosi on Monday that some of the teams looking to acquire Stanton via trade from the Miami Marlins believe the reigning MVP's first choice would be to join the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Stanton's contract contains a full no-trade clause, and Morosi reported that the 28-year-old may be hesitant to waive that clause for another team without first getting "clarity" on the Dodgers' interest in acquiring him.

The Dodgers and Marlins have reportedly been in contact about a potential Stanton trade, but talks haven't progressed beyond the conceptual stages, according to Morosi.

Stanton has also reportedly given Miami a list of teams he'd accept a trade to that includes the Dodgers. It's not clear what other teams are on the list.

Stanton, a native of the Los Angeles area, revealed that he "grew up a Dodgers fan" during an October appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

He also seems to enjoy hitting at Dodger Stadium, as he owns a career .310/.362/.713 slash line with nine homers in 97 plate appearances at the venerable ballpark.

The St. Louis Cardinals, San Francisco Giants, and Boston Red Sox have all been connected to Stanton this offseason. Both St. Louis and San Francisco reportedly made offers to the Marlins, and are apparently the two teams still showing the most interest in him, per Morosi.
