The trade deadline is a little more than a month away and we are starting to hear rumors out there of players who the Cardinals could be interested in. First it was Cliff Lee and then it was Jonathan Papelbon. These rumors will only pick up as we get closer to the deadline. I thought I would look at 5 players who could have trade value for the Cardinals and who are players the Cardinals could deal.
1. Matt Adams: I know the team has said several times that they are not interested in dealing Adams, but who knows what offer could pop up within the month? I believe that Adams’ worth is much higher to other teams than it is in St. Louis. What is Adams’ future role in St. Louis? It looks like it will be really hard not to bring back Carlos Beltran and Oscar Taveras should be ready next year, so that leaves Adams where he is this year, the bench. It would make sense for the Cards to move him while his stock is still relatively high to other teams.
