Outfielder Tommy Pham is saying goodbye to the Cardinals and hello to the Rays. More

According to the New York Post's Joel Sherman, the Tampa Bay Rays have acquired outfielder Tommy Pham and worldwide bonus pool money from the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Cardinals confirmed the trade, Tuesday.

The Rays also received global slot money from the Cardinals, who acquired minor leaguers Justin Williams, Genesis Cabrera and Roel Ramirez in the deal.

Williams, 22, made a one-day cameo with the Rays earlier this month, and has had an up-and-down season, his first at Triple-A, hitting.258 with 8 homers, 46 RBIs and a.689 OPS.

Cabrera, 21, has fashioned a 7-6 mark with a 4.12 ERA in 21 games for Montgomery of the Southern League (AA), striking out 124 batters in 113.2 innings pitched while limiting the opposition to.218 batting mark.

Red Sox acquire second baseman Ian Kinsler from Angels
While Kinsler's bat has faded in recent years, his defense remains good enough to rate as a 2 WAR player according to FanGraphs. David Price , a teammate of Kinsler's during their time together in Detroit, also raved about Kinsler's competitive nature.

Ramirez, 23, is 3-1 with a 2.53 ERA in two levels of the Rays' system this season. The 6-1, 210-pound Ramirez is from Laredo, Texas.

According to Bob Nightengale, the deal does not involve Chris Archer. St. Louis was reported to have a lot of interested in him throughout the last calendar year.

Though Pham has played parts of five seasons in the majors, he will be arbitration eligible for the first time this winter and is under team control through the 2021 season.

Pham is batting.248 with 14 home runs and 41 RBIs in 98 games this season for the Cardinals.

KMOX will update this story as more information becomes available.
