Cardinals Trade For Paul Goldschmidt

Cardinals Trade For Paul Goldschmidt

Kelly has six years before being eligible for arbitration and Weaver has five.

If he doesn't reach a deal with the Cards, Goldschmidt, 31, will be a free agent at the end of the 2019 season. has been one of the top players in baseball since the Dbacks selected him in the eighth round of the 2009 amateur draft. The three-time Gold Glove victor and four-time Silver Slugger started 155 games at first base.

Andy Young #29 of the Surprise Saguaros and St. Louis Cardinals in action during the 2018 Arizona Fall League on October 17, 2018 at Surprise Stadium in Surprise, Arizona.

Young hit his way up past the GCL to the New York-Penn League in his draft year, posting a.271/.356/.406 slash line with 5 doubles, 6 triples, 3 home runs, and 3 stolen bases while putting up a 17/47 BB/K ratio over 53 games and 225 plate appearances.

As for Arizona, Weaver is the major piece going back to the desert. They were priced out of any chance of re-signing left-hander Patrick Corbin.

It's rebuild mode for Arizona.

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. Simply put, he's a power hitting first baseman who also hits for a very high average. 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.

Like Mattingly and Marlins CEO Derek Jeter, Stottlemyre and Hillman have ties to the Yankees. Hillman is a former manager in the Yankees' minor league system, and in 2011-13 he was Mattingly's bench coach with the Dodgers.
