Cardinals acquire Paul Goldschmidt from the Diamondbacks

The Arizona Diamondbacks have traded first baseman Paul Goldschmidt to the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for catcher Carson Kelly, pitcher Luke Weaver, infielder Andy Young, and a 2019 MLB draft pick.

What It Means:

The Cardinals have been lacking a power hitter in the middle of their lineup and got one in Goldschmidt. They paid a relatively low cost due to the slugger being under contract for just one more season. There is a chance they try to work out an extension before the season is over though. The six-time All-Star will likely hit cleanup and man first base for St. Louis in 2019.

Goldschmidt has averaged 31.5 homers, 102 RBI, and 105.3 runs scored while posting a .301 batting average and .946 OPS the last four seasons.
