MIAMI -- Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill, responding to the leaked Astros trade notes, repeated on Tuesday that Giancarlo Stanton is not available on the trade market.

Deadspin.com on Monday published proprietary information that was hacked from the Astros' database. It included a number of private conversations between the Astros and other clubs.

One item, dated Nov. 15, 2013, the day after the General Managers Meetings concluded in Orlando, Fla., mentioned the Marlins and Stanton.

The Marlins publicly stated before the meetings that Stanton wasn't available. Hill noted again on Tuesday that the slugger is not being shopped.

"Unfortunately, whatever they put in their system was leaked," Hill said. "We know what the truth was. We've never shopped him. I told you guys from Day 1 last winter. We never shopped him. We never intended on doing anything. We shut it down, so it wouldn't be an issue."

The Marlins on Monday, a scheduled off day, called Stanton to inform the right fielder that he is not being traded.

Hill added that the Marlins receive calls all the time about their players.

"I would think that clubs like our players," Hill said. "We have good players. We do get calls. It never was a consideration."
