All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt has been traded from the Arizona Diamondbacks to the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for right-handed pitcher Luke Weaver, catcher Carson Kelly, infielder Andrew Young, and a 2019 Competitive Balance Round B draft pick.
The Cardinals get themselves a bonafide superstar in Goldschmidt, who has made the All-Star team in six straight seasons, in addition to winning four Silver Slugger Awards and three Gold Glove Awards.
