Cardinals acquire Paul Goldschmidt from Diamondbacks

The St. Louis Cardinals reportedly are certain Paul Goldschmidt will love life in the Gateway to the West.

After a poor start to the season, Goldschmidt recovered a year ago to a.290 batting average for 33 home runs and 93 RBI. Goldschmidt, 31, has played all eight seasons of his major league career with the Diamondbacks, who selected him in the eighth round of the 2009 amateur draft.

Goldschmidt has just one year remaining on his contract at $14.5 million, a club option the D-Backs exercised at the end of October.

Goldschmidt, 31, has been a National League All-Star each of the past six seasons and he's a four-time (2013, 2015, 2017, 2018) NL Silver Slugger award victor and three-time (2013, 2015, 2017) Rawlings Gold Glove award recipient. The right-handed batter has hit 30-plus homers in four of the last six seasons, including a league-leading 36 in 2013, when he finished second in MVP voting.

Last season, Kelly played 19 games with the Cardinals, hitting.114 with three RBI. Young, who split his time a year ago between the Advanced-A Palm Beach Cardinals and Double-A Springfield Cardinals, hit.289 with 58 RBI and 21 homers.
