Cards strike Goldschmidt in trade

Cards strike Goldschmidt in trade

The Cardinals added a big-time bat to their lineup for 2019 by acquiring first baseman Paul Goldschmidt from the Diamondbacks, the teams announced Wednesday.

The Cardinals were able to acquire Goldschmidt without much disruption to their major league roster, shipping right-hander Luke Weaver, catcher Carson Kelly, minor league infielder Andy Young and a competitive balance round draft pick to Arizona.

A six-time All-Star at 31, Goldschmidt was among the top players available in the trade market.

Reds have a plan to respond to Joe Gomez’s absence, insists Klopp
Only 23 minutes into the game Gomez was forced off the pitch following a tackle with Ben Mee . I imagine a player who seems to be an honest player, in Gomez, realised that.

Since 2013, Goldschmidt ranks second among National Leaguers in home runs (181), RBIs (602), hits (996), runs (599), walks (575) and extra-base hits (413). Kelly has six years before being eligible for arbitration and Weaver has five.

He has compiled a career.297 batting average, 209 home runs, and 710 RBI. And there was obvious concern about the D-backs' ability to sign him beyond this season. Tuesday the Dbacks lost their best pitcher from last season to free agency. Greinke finished last season with a 15-11 record in 33 starts with a 3.21 ERA.

Hazen wouldn't offer a guess on whether Greinke would be on the team next season but said "We're exploring everything possible to make this organization stronger".
