Cardinals send OF Randal Grichuk to Blue Jays for two right-handers

Cardinals trade Randal Grichuk to the Blue Jays for two pitchers MLB trade news: Blue Jays acquire OF Randal Grichuk from Cardinals

Randal Grichuk is the latest piece added to the Toronto Blue Jays outfield mix, the slugger acquired Friday from the St. Louis Cardinals for reliever Dominic Leone and prospect Conner Greene.

Grichuk has played 57 games in left field, 55 in right and five in centre.

The 26-year-old outfielder spent the majority of the 2017 season up in the majors with the Cardinals, but it didn't come without a few hiccups along the way.

Grichuk became eligible for salary arbitration this season and signed a one-year, $2.6-million deal a week ago.

Simone Biles' mother has said she wants to appear in court for the criminal sentencing of former Team USA gymnastics physician Dr. He has already been sentenced to 60 years in federal prison on child pornography charges. "I dont have a dog in this fight sir".

After coming to St. Louis from the Los Angeles Angels in the trade that sent David Freese and Fernando Salas west in 2013, Grichuk hit.249 with 66 home runs and 182 RBIs in 404 games.

It seemed inevitable that the Cardinals would trade away an outfielder or two after acquiring Marcell Ozuna, and Toronto is a pretty nice landing spot for Grichuk. He finished 3-0 with a 2.65 ERA and 81 strikeouts over the course of 65 appearances en route to a 2.2 WAR. At double-A New Hampshire previous year, he posted a 5.29 ERA in 132.2 innings with 83 walks and 92 strikeouts.

Greene, 22, was a seventh-round pick in 2013. Like several other Blue Jays starting pitchers in New Hampshire last season, his ascent appeared to stall.
