Cardinals To Receive Cash For Lugo

The Cardinals will likely choose to receive cash to complete the Julio Lugo trade with Baltimore, GM John Mozeliak told Brian Feldman of ESPN Radio in St. Louis.  The Cardinals have a choice between receiving a player to be named later or cash considerations for the veteran infielder.

Feldman opines that this demonstrates the lack of value Lugo really had as spring went along.  It's hard to argue with that reasoning.  Lugo became expendable when Felipe Lopez fell into their laps at a bargain rate.

The 34-year-old hasn't exactly been mashing for the O's so far this season, as evidenced by his .107/.167/.107 slash line.  Something tells me we might see Julio again when we run the "Traded Players' Slow Starts" post later this evening.

  1. The Cards need as much cash as they can get to for all the money they will have to spend on Albert…

    we’ll pay you to take him back as well…

  3. 5 bucks, a bag of peanuts, and a gentelmans handshake. The Cardinals are still the winners of this trade.

    That’s crazy. The O’s have a guy named Sarfate in AAA. He is throwing 98mph. has MLB experience and isn’t on the roster.
