St. Louis Cardinals Rumors: Pitcher Becoming Trade Candidate

The St. Louis Cardinals have performed far below expectations this season and sport a 12-24 record because of it. As a result, they are gearing up to be sellers at the 2023 MLB Trade Deadline, and there are rumblings that they are ready to move Jordan Montgomery because of it.

Montgomery is a pending UFA who will surely get a lot of attention in the trade market. After all, playoff teams are always looking to improve their rotations, and he is a very effective starter while performing at his highest level.

Montgomery has had a solid start to the 2023 season as well. Although he sports a losing 2-4 record, his 3.29 ERA shows that he has still been effective and that the team around him is not delivering for him.

Some clubs to pay attention to in the Montgomery sweepstakes include the Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Angels, Baltimore Orioles, and Atlanta Braves. We will need to wait and see where the veteran ends up being moved from here.
