Cardinals strike gold, get Goldschmidt from Diamondbacks

Cardinals beat reporter Jenifer Langosch reported that the team will now look to improve their bullpen and add a left-handed bench player instead of targeting free agent outfielder Bryce Harper.

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).

"There are decisions you want to do and there are decisions you know you have to do", Hazen said. He had a bit of a down season, but that isn't expected to make his value drop too much. He was long rated among the top St. Louis prospects and Hazen expects him to immediately join the rotation.

Kelly has struggled immensely in 63 big league games but is still just 24 years of age.

Goldschmidt, who has been named to six straight All-Star Games, was heading into the final year of his contract. They were priced out of any chance of re-signing left-hander Patrick Corbin.

Although the Diamondbacks are entering rebuilding mode, it's unlikely they'll allow Goldschmidt, 31, to leave for the Cardinals, Astros or any other team for less than market value.

Dbacks have been in talks with multiple teams who have interest in Paul Goldschmidt and Zack Greinke. Greinke came to the Dback after three seasons with the Dodgers. Stottlemyre's father, Mel, was a Yankees pitcher and pitching coach.
