Cardinals acquire Paul Goldschmidt in trade with Diamondbacks

Cardinals strike gold, get Goldschmidt from Diamondbacks

The 31-year-old Goldschmidt has been one of baseball's best first basemen since he broke into the league in 2011.

The St. Louis Cardinals have struck gold in their search for a big hitter, getting All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt from the Arizona Diamondbacks in a multiplayer trade. Nightengale also revealed the Cardinals might be willing to trade for Goldschmidt without him signing a long-term contract with the team prior to his arrival.

Luke Weaver, Carson Kelly, Andy Young and a Compensation Round B selection in the 2019 MLB Draft are heading back to Arizona. This past season, he hit.290/.389/.533 with 33 home runs and 83 RBI in 690 plate appearances while playing above-average defense. His salary will be $14.5 million next season. As a result, the Cardinals offense was good in 2018, but not good enough - they ranked fifth in the National League in runs, eighth in on-base percentage and seventh in slugging percentage. Goldschmidt, Matt Carpenter and Marcell Ozuna should anchor the Redbirds' attack in 2019. 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.
