According to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Cardinals second baseman Adam Kennedy has asked for a trade. Kennedy is unhappy with the uncertainty of his role.
Kennedy, 32, is hitting .263/.304/.327 in 339 plate appearances. He’s been an asset defensively, making 19 more plays than the average second baseman. He’ll earn $4MM next year. Even with the strong glovework, Kennedy may be difficult to trade.
