MLB Rumors: St. Louis Cardinals Interested In Cincinnati Reds Pitcher

It's no secret that the Cardinals are looking to improve their rotation before the deadline passes. This has made them linked to several pitchers on the trading block, and now Reds pitcher Tyler Mahle is officially on their radar, according to Jon Morosi.

Mahle has been in the rumor mill since the offseason, but a trade has yet to occur. However, with the Reds parting ways with Luis Castillo last week, the writing seems to be on the wall for Mahle.

In 19 games this season, Mahle has a 5-7 record to go along with a 4.40 ERA. Overall, he has the potential to be a decent middle-of-the-rotation pitcher for the Cards - if they acquire him, of course.
