After making a few additions during the off-season, the St. Louis Cardinals is primed for another run at a World Series Championship. St. Louis added another talented offensive piece to its lineup by trading for outfielder Jason Heyward. Heyward, who is one year away from free agency, is one of the better athletes in baseball, but hasn’t put together a full-season of production. To secure Heyward’s services, St. Louis traded away one of its prized young pitchers, Shelby Miller. It was a bold move for a St. Louis team that values team controlled, high-upside starting pitchers. A big season from Heyward will help take the pressure off of Matt Holliday, Matt Carpenter, and Yadier Molina and ease the tension caused by trading away Miller. St. Louis’s ace, Adam Wainwright is dealing with a minor abdominal injury, but should be ready for Opening Day. To date, St. Louis is 9-7 in Grapefruit League play.
