Cardinals trade for RHP Juan Nicasio

Cardinals trade for RHP Juan Nicasio”

Back on August 31, Pittsburgh made small yet notable headlines for dumping reliever Juan Nicasio on irrevocable waivers, at which point he was quickly snatched up by the Phillies.

The Phillies claimed the righty, who has an ERA of 2.79 in 61.1 innings and 61 strikeouts on the year. But it's hard to see how this is not the outcome Neal Huntington claimed he was trying to avoid when he let Nicasio go.

The Cardinals announced Wednesday they acquired RHP Juan Nicasio from the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for minor league infielder Eliezer Alvarez. His 21 holds rank tied for fifth in the NL. Nicasio can't pitch for the Cardinals in the playoffs if they make it, but he can certainly help them get there. In 260 career games (82 starts), the Dominican is 35-37 with a 4.60 ERA in 618.2 innings pitched.

Nicasio is still a free agent after this season, so he can go anywhere.

Alvarez, 22, was signed by the Cardinals as a non-drafted worldwide free agent in 2011 out of Santiago, Dominican Republic. The 22-year-old batted.247 this season at double A with a.321 on-base percentage in 186 at-bats.
