The St. Louis Cardinals could look for a reunion with Randal Grichuk
The St. Louis Cardinals are very familiar with Randal Grichuk considering that he played in their organization from 2013 through 2017 (in the majors from 2014 through 2017).
They had a good outfield entering the season but they have had some down seasons and injuries.
Right fielder Dylan Carlson just returned to the team on Friday so perhaps he will improve their offense at the spot but currently, their right fielders have a wRC+ of 75, which is 27th in baseball.
The San Diego Padres
Considering that it’s for more than just one year, it’s unlikely that the Rockies would trade Randal Grichuk to the San Diego Padres but they desperately need some help in center and right field.
Right fielder Wil Myers is going to miss some time due to a knee injury but he wasn’t playing well anyway. That’s why their right fielders have had a wRC+ of 65, or 29th in the sport.
Their center fielders have a wRC+ of 75, which is 24th in the sport so Grichuk would help them in either spot. Furthermore, their DH’s have a wRC+ of 66, which is also 29th in the sport.
