The Diamondbacks announced on Wednesday evening that the club traded first baseman Paul Goldschmidt to the Cardinals in exchange for pitcher Luke Weaver, catcher Carson Kelly, infielder Andrew Young, and a Competitive Balance Round B 2019 draft pick. The 31-year-old has been selected to each of the last six All-Star Games.

He has compiled a career.297 batting average, 209 home runs, and 710 RBI.

Despite favorable reaction from the baseball world on both teams' hauls, Arizona fans weren't exactly pleased to see the star first baseman sent off to St. Louis. He won the NL Silver Slugger Award in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2018, and he has three Gold Gloves (2013, 2015, 2017) on his shelf. As a result, the Cardinals offense was good in 2018, but not good enough - they ranked fifth in the National League in runs, eighth in on-base percentage and seventh in slugging percentage. Goldschmidt is set to earn $14.5 million in 2019, the final year of his contract. After going 7-2 with a 3.88 ERA, Weaver followed that up with a record of 7-11 and an ERA of 4.95.
