Ellis was traded to the Cardinals on Thursday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

Ellis split time between Double-A and Triple-A last season in the Braves organization, although his numbers with Mississippi were far superior to those he posted with Gwinnett. He holds a nice history of missing bats (274 strikeouts since 2014) which could bode well for him as he moves into his age-24 season, although his lack of command keep his ceiling at that of a back-end starter.
