    Cardinals/Rays trade involving Matthew Liberatore

    The Rays are getting back at least one player off the Cardinals MLB roster. Gotta think it's Jose Martinez?

    A valuable asset for an Arenado trade.


    Fire Luke Walton

    I can't imagine who we gave up yet.

    Has to be outfield help.

    I can see them wanting Jose Martinez as a cheap DH, and I would imagine they would value Randy Arozarena's skill set. I have no idea.

    Pitching prospect Matt Liberatore going to cardinals in trade from Rays. STL extra OFs Tyler O’Neill and Jose Martinez were discussed. Possible 1 or both are going to Rays.

    If I recall, Liberatore and Gorman (Cards second best prospect) are really close. Liberatore went 3 slots ahead of Gorman in the 2018 draft, and they apparently hang together a lot.

    It's also possible the Cards wanted Liberatore all along in that draft and actually had him targeted over Gorman, but he was taken by the Rays.

    It's a 3 for 3 trade

    I'm only guessing here

    Rays acquire
    Bader
    J. Martinez?
    38th pick

    Cards acquire
    Liberatore
    Kiermaier
    70th pick

    The St. Louis Cardinals are trading OF Jose Martinez, OF Randy Arozarena and a Compensation A pick (after 1st round) to the Tampa Bay Rays for LHP prospect Matt Liberatore, a low-level catching prospect and Compensation B pick (post-2nd), sources familiar with the deal tell ESPN.

    Will Liberatore stay in St. Louis or be part of another deal (Arenado?)?

    Part of me says what the heck are the Rays thinking, the other part of me thinks Liberatore is gonna bust if the Rays are trading him away.

    Rays are usually all over this stuff, but Cards had really scouted this kid before 2018 apparently, and know a lot about him.
