Cardinals trade INF Aledmys Diaz to Blue Jays for JB Woodman

Cardinals trade INF Aledmys Diaz to Blue Jays for JB Woodman

The Cardinals traded shortstop Aledmys Diaz to Blue Jays in exchange for minor league outfielder J.B. Woodman on Friday. The 23-year-old hit.240 with seven homers and four steals in the Class A Midwest League this year. Puma says, however, that Bruce is looking for a five-year deal.

Had he put those type of numbers up again in 2017, there's nearly no chance the Cardinals would have dealt him.

The Cardinals' roster stands at 38 players after the trade. His power numbers were down, and his defence went from 0.2 dWAR in 2016, to a -0.6 in 2017. It's also possible that the Mets could try Bruce at first base - he's played three whole games there in his career - making him insurance for Dom Smith, who struggled in his first taste of the majors and may or may not be the Mets' future first baseman. But Tulowitzki, owed $20 million each of the next two seasons, played in just 66 games last season, with Ryan Goins serving as the team's primary shortstop for much of the year.

The left-handed hitting Woodman is 6-foot-2, 195 pounds and throws right-handed. The acquisition of Diaz makes the decisions make more sense, as the Blue Jays are in need of middle infield depth, which is why the call on Goins was a bit confusing at first at the very least.

The Cardinals also announced on Friday that they have tendered contracts to the remaining players on their 40-man major league roster who were not already signed for 2018. At the very least, the Blue Jays have got things going.
