Louis Cardinals acquire Nolan Arenado from Colorado Rockies

Similarly, because Arenado is expected to defer money and amend his contract, the MLB Players Association must sign off on it. But Arenado would likely be willing to waive his no-trade clause in order to join the Cardinals, Rosenthal says.

Arenado inked an eight year, $260M extension just two seasons ago with an opt out after the 2021 season.

The Cardinals made the playoffs previous year with a 30-28 record and the Rockies missed out with a 26-34 record.

"Colorado general director Jeff Bridich confessed last offseason he was listening to trade offers about the five-time All-Star, also Arenado stated in February of 2020 that" there is a great deal of disrespect about there" and" there is not any connection anymore" between him and Bridich.

The complicated deal took months of on-and-off discussions and gained momentum in recent weeks when the Rockies committed to sending around $50 million to help cover a portion of the six years and $199 million remaining on Arenado's contract, sources said. They have always shown interest in Arenado over the years, but this time conversations have progressed to an almost-official deal.

Wainwright is returning for his 17th season with St. Louis, matching Bob Gibson (1959-75) for the second-most seasons with the Cardinals among pitchers, one behind Jesse Haines (1920-37).

Arenado will head to St. Louis with the Cardinals gunning for the NL Central crown, and the Rockies appear headed for rebuild mode as they look to shed salary and hit the reset button in the National League West.

Arenado's contract has a no-trade provision that requires his approval for any assignment.

Talks are in the early stages, per reports; no trade is imminent and there's nothing credible in terms of other players being discussed. He is owed $35 million each year through 2024, $32 million in 2025 and $27 million in 2026.

Arenado slumped during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, hitting.253 with eight home runs and a.738 OPS over 48 games.

Arenado would be the latest established star acquired by St. Louis in his prime.

That unfortunate situation could also determine what the Rockies decide to do with several other players, most notably Trevor Story.
