How Cardinals Trade for Paul Goldschmidt Impacts NL Central Race

How Cardinals Trade for Paul Goldschmidt Impacts NL Central Race

The St. Louis Cardinals are the top runner to land the first baseman.

Three teams were considered to be in "serious discussions" with the D-backs to acquire Paul Goldschmidt, according to 98.7 FM Arizona's Sports Station's John Gambadoro, who said the teams were the St. Louis Cardinals, Houston Astros and Tampa Bay Rays.

Goldschmidt, 31, has been a National League All-Star each of the past six seasons and he's a four-time (2013, 2015, 2017, 2018) NL Silver Slugger award victor and three-time (2013, 2015, 2017) Rawlings Gold Glove award recipient.

Goldschmidt is entering the final season of club control and will earn $14.5 million next year.




Arizona went 82-80 in the NL West and finished behind the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado, which both made the playoffs. If there was no trade, the Diamondbacks faced the prospect of Goldschmidt leaving as a free agent after next season.

In 2013, Goldschmidt hit 36 home runs and drove in 125. He is a.297 career hitter with 209 home runs, and was runner-up in the NL MVP voting in 2013 and 2015.

The Cardinals first must acquire Goldschmidt, then convince him over time to stick with the team before we can gauge the merits of their risky pursuit. Kelly has six years before being eligible for arbitration and Weaver has five. After going 7-2 with a 3.88 ERA, Weaver followed that up with a record of 7-11 and an ERA of 4.95.
