According to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, a trade is not expected to be completed on Sunday.

Nine dead in Taliban attack on Pakistan school Shehzad Akbar, medical director of Hayatabad Medical Complex, said six people died of their wounds and 18 were being treated. According to the Pakistan Army's media wing, The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan has claimed responsibility for the attack.
The Marlins also want to move Dee Gordon, who's owed $38 million through 2020, and the second baseman would be a nice fit for the Giants, who lack speed.
The Marlins are reportedly only willing to pick up $45 million of Stanton's contract to make the deal work. But he's taken a deliberate approach in considering his options, in part because he wanted to make sure the Dodgers - his preferred destination - have every opportunity to get involved.
Yet Stanton might be waiting for a resolution with the Dodgers before deciding between the Giants and Cardinals.
But for luxury tax reasons, the Dodgers are unable to dive completely into trade talks with the Marlins this winter. Approve a deal the Dodgers liked - for the goal of offloading Stanton's remaining $295 million contract (or as much of it as a team will accept) - or keep Stanton (and his mega contract) on the books.
