    Exclamation Rockies Trade Nolan Arenado to the Cardinals

    The Cardinals and Rockies have swung an enormously impactful trade centering on Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic was among those to report. The Rockies will send around $50MM to the Cardinals in the deal, according to Rosenthal, who adds that it likely won’t be official tonight and perhaps won’t go through this weekend.

    Arenado has a full no-trade clause, though Rosenthal and Nick Groke of The Athletic reported earlier this week that he is likely to waive it in order to join the Cardinals. The five-time All-Star also has an opt-out clause in the seven-year, $234MM extension he signed with the Rockies before the 2019 campaign. But Arenado would still be able to opt out after 2021, he’d get an additional opt-out after ’22 and he would keep his full no-trade clause, Rosenthal tweets. He still has $199MM left on his pact over the next six years.

    Arenado will receive another guaranteed year on his contract for roughly $15MM, per MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, who adds that he could waive his no-trade clause as early as Saturday.

    Sad for the Rockies but what a plus for the Cardinals. Can't believe how they fixed the salary to work out for everybody!

    The Rockies got a pathetic haul in return for Arenado considering they are giving the Cardinals $50 million to help pay his salary

    Terrible trade in my view. Lopsided for sure.

    The Rockies want to lose more than Tampa Bay Rays.

    I think it's just a reminder that major league sports teams are businesses. Many owners/boards are fine with going .500 and staying in the black.
