Cardinals' Max Schrock: Traded to Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schrock was dealt to St. Louis from Oakland, alongside Yairo Munoz, in exchange for Stephen Piscotty, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports.

Schrock started the 2017 campaign off a little slow at the Double-A level, but really turned it on over the last few months to finish the year hitting .321/.379/.422 with seven home runs and 46 RBI. The 23-year-old is a well-rounded second baseman, and although he isn't a power hitter by any means, the 5-foot-8 Schrock has shown the ability to hit for a very high average against minor-league pitching. His strikeout rate is minuscule, as Schrock recorded a 42:34 K:BB during 106 games, which was one of the top marks in the Texas League this past season. The infielder should get his first crack against Triple-A pitching this year. In order to profile as a big leaguer, Schrock's hit tool will need to continue to carry him, as his middling defense and lack of power will preclude him from getting playing time if he isn't consistently hitting around .300.

Cardinals' Yairo Munoz: Dealt to St. Louis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Munoz was traded to the Cardinals from the A's, alongside Max Schrock, in exchange for Stephen Piscotty, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Munoz split time between the two highest levels of the minors last year, and fared decently well during his first opportunity in Triple-A after being promoted in late June. Over the course of 65 games with Nashville, the shortstop slashed .289/.316/.414 with seven home runs, 42 RBI and 10 stolen bases. The soon-to-be 22-year-old can play anywhere in the infield, and looked much more comfortable at the plate this past season than he did in 2016 at the Double-A level, during which he hit just .240 with an OPS of .653. He will begin the 2018 campaign with Triple-A Memphis, and should be available as a depth option if the big-league club deals with injuries this summer. His likely long-term role is as a utility infielder.

Cardinals' Marcell Ozuna: Dealt to Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ozuna was traded to the Cardinals from the Marlins on Wednesday in exchange for Sandy Alcantara, Magneuris Sierra, Zac Gallen and Daniel Castano , Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

After failing to secure Giancarlo Stanton, the Cardinals will snag a different outfielder from Miami, as Ozuna is heading to St. Louis following five seasons in the big leagues with the Marlins. During his breakout 2017 campaign, Ozuna slashed .312/.376/.548 with 37 home runs and 124 RBI, with all stats checking in as career highs. Ozuna is the impact bat that the Cardinals were searching for at the winter meetings, and he will be a mainstay in the No. 3 or 4 spot in the order for St. Louis during this upcoming season. As for defensive positioning, Ozuna will probably remain in left field while Tommy Pham transitions to right.

Cardinals' Francisco Pena: Signs with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pena agreed to a minor-league deal with St. Louis on Wednesday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Pena spent the past two seasons in the Orioles' system, and wound up playing in 19 big-league games during that span. During 51 contests with Triple-A Norfolk in 2017, the catcher slashed .278/.309/.450 with six home runs and 18 RBI. Although he may not make an impact at the major-league level, Pena will serve as organizational depth for the Redbirds moving forward.

Cardinals' Luke Gregerson: Inks deal with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gregerson agreed to a two-year, $11 million deal with the Cardinals on Sunday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Gregerson posted a sub-3.50 ERA in each of his first eight major-league seasons but took a step back in 2017 as he accumulated a 4.57 ERA over 61 innings of relief with the Astros. His regression was mainly attributable to the fact that he struggled to keep the ball in the park, surrendering a career-high 13 home runs. He'll likely mix in as a late reliever for the Cardinals in 2018 with the potential for some save opportunities as well.
