Cardinals acquire Diamondbacks slugger Paul Goldschmidt in blockbuster trade

Cardinals acquire Diamondbacks slugger Paul Goldschmidt in blockbuster trade”

The St Louis Cardinals and Arizona Diamondbacks announced they have agreed a deal for first baseman Paul Goldschmidt.

Paul Goldschmidt's exit Wednesday from the Arizona Diamondbacks may open the door for two hot-hitting infielders who held down the corners most of last season for the Reno Aces, Christian Walker and Kevin Cron.

St. Louis still has plenty of money to spend this offseason.

Goldschmidt, 31, is the only NL player to be an All-Star each of the past six seasons - only Mike Trout and Salvador Pérez in the American League have done the same - and that's just the start of his hardware.

The 24-year-old Kelly has played for the Cardinals in parts of the past three seasons, batting.154.

Young, 24, hit a combined.289 in Double-A and high-A ball. Arizona will also receive a 2019 competitive balance Round B draft pick. Kelly has six years before being eligible for arbitration and Weaver has five. Patrick Corbin has a wicked slider that hitters can't seem to connect with.

NEW YORK (AP) - Baseball players are concerned the Seattle Mariners have become yet another rebuilding team and might be joined by others following a season of steep attendance drops among clubs that faded early and never contended for the playoffs.

But another Arizona question is whether it can trade ace right-hander Zack Greinke, a move that probably would require the Diamondbacks to eat a chunk of his formidable salary. Regardless of which side of the debate you come down on, there is little doubt that either Bryce Harper or Manny Machado would make the Cubs a much better team. Hillman is a former manager in the Yankees' minor league system, and in 2011-13 he was Mattingly's bench coach with the Dodgers.
