Cleveland Guardians Rumors: Pitcher Linked to St. Louis Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals are looking to improve their starting rotation as they aim to become legitimate contenders. As a result of this, they have been browsing the current trade market, and one player who is on their radar is Zach Plesac. 

The Cleveland Guardians were shopping Plesac at last year’s deadline, but they were unable to find a deal worth completing. However, things could change on that front this season, as several teams like the Cardinals are looking to improve the middle of their rotations. 

Plesac would provide the Cardinals with another experienced starter who would make them better on paper. Although he is not a superstar, he has shown that he can be quite reliable while pitching at his best. Therefore, it makes sense that the Cards are considering bringing him in. 

Alas, we will now need to wait and see if the Cardinals’ interest in Plesac results in them acquiring before this year’s trade deadline from here.
