DENVER — A day Colorado Rockies fans have been dreading might come appears to be here.
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic is reporting that the St. Louis Cardinals have agreed to acquire star third baseman Nolan Arenado, as well as a large amount of cash.
Left-handed pitcher Austin Gomber, first baseman Luken Baker and outfielder Jhon Torres are among players who could possibly be coming to Colorado, per Rosenthal.
The deal is still pending approval from the MLB and players union.
Arenado signed a $260 million, eight-year deal with Colorado in February 2019 and is owed $199 million for the six remaining seasons.
Trade talks began heating back up on Thursday night and it was rumored that both St. Louis and the Atlanta Braves were interested in working out a deal to acquire Arenado.
The 29-year-old Arenado has eight Gold Glove Awards, the most of any player in franchise history. He's also a five-time All-Star.
