Arizona will receive pitcher Luke Weaver, catcher Carson Kelly, infielder Andy Young, and a 2019 competitive-balance draft pick.

Goldschmidt owns a career slash line of .297/.398/.532 and has finished in the top three of NL MVP voting three times.

The Cardinals lose Weaver, who had high expectations heading into last season but ended up in a bullpen role a few different times.

The 25-year-old finished with an 8.0 K/9 ratio  it was 10.7 before last season  4.95 ERA and 1.50 WHIP.
