St Louis Cardinals Trade Center

Following a disappointing 2018 season, we continue to hold on to the belief that we will be players in the 2019 playoff discussion.

 

However, we can't deny the fact that a strategy of outslugging the rest of the NL Central did not play out in our favor.  Therefore, we are intent on shaking things up at both the MLB Pro level and within our minor league system this offseason.

 

On the Block:

 

P Antonio Cruz (26 yr old) - former 1st round draft pick, back end LH SP or wipe out caliber stuff as LOOGY, 1.34 WHIP, 193 K in 238 career IP 

 

1B Alex Dickerson (28) - above avg skill set and run producer who took a step back this year (228/312/337) following a strong 296/337/459 in 2018 

 

1B Allen Jacobs (27) - more suited to DH role in the AL but can field 1B adequately; career AAA (299/365/467 in 1307 ABs); improved in 2018 

 

3B Evan Longoria (32) - cornerstone player at the hot corner, WAR machine (47.8 since 2014), still very much in his prime, career .401 OBP  

 

OF Justin Upton (31) - will move for salary relief but not 100% committed to moving, 127 OPS+ / 131 RC+ in 2018 proved still a dangerous threat

 

IF Allen Walker (24) - excellent middle infield defensive skills with solid overall hitting tools

 

 

 

Seeking any combination:

 

MLB Pro-caliber -   #2-3 MLB Pro RH SP

LH / switch-hitting backup C

3B/SS

 

Specs -                   SS/2b

OF

SP
