D-backs trade slugger Goldschmidt to Cardinals

First baseman Paul Goldschmidt, a six-time All-Star who hit 209 home runs during his eight seasons with Arizona, is headed to St. Louis as part of a multiplayer trade.

Luke Weaver was one of my biggest busts among 2018 picks, but the move to Arizona does improve his rebound prospects. The team should be more patient with him as a regular member of the rotation — less competition for spots — and he'll have a stronger infield defense behind him.

Something to keep in mind with Paul Goldschmidt's trade: Arizona's Chase Field had only the 11th-highest runs scored park factor, and the 20th-highest home runs factor, last season. The ballpark change isn't nearly as dramatic as it might've been pre-humidor.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Paul Goldschmidt has played basically a full season against the Dodgers. He's a .302/.376/.551 hitter in 562 career plate appearances against them, with 31 home runs and 98 RBIs. Now, with Goldschmidt reportedly going from the D-backs to the Cardinals, Dodgers will see him 12 fewer times in 2019.
