Cardinals Trade For Paul Goldschmidt

Officials with Arizona Cardinals announced Wednesday that 1st Baseman Paul Goldschmidt has been traded to the St. Louis Cardinals.

The trade: St. Louis Cardinals acquire 1B Paul Goldschmidt from the Arizona Diamondbacks for right-handed starting pitcher Luke Weaver, C Carson Kelly, infielder Andy Young and a Round B compensation pick in the 2019 draft. Especially when the deal brought in a six-time All-Star, four-time Silver Slugger, three-time Gold Glove, two-time runner-up for MVP.

Goldschmidt is entering the final season of club control and will earn $14.5 million next year. He hit.290 with 33 home runs and 83 RBIs last season. The Cardinals believed they needed a boost in the middle of their lineup to compete with the likes of Milwaukee and the Cubs in the NL Central.

Arizona went 82-80 in the NL West and finished behind the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado, which both made the playoffs. This is strictly a rental for the Cardinals, but the two sides could work out a contract extension before he reaches free agency following the 2019 season. Goldschmidt career batting average with the Dbacks is.297 with 209 home runs. "We understand that. We've understood that for a long time". He has spent the last eight seasons with the D-Backs after making his debut in August of 2011.

"Certainly this is a bittersweet decision on our part", Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen said on a conference call.

It's rebuild mode for Arizona. Greinke came to the Dback after three seasons with the Dodgers.
