Marcell Ozuna To Reject Qualifying Offer

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Marcell Ozuna plans to reject the team's one-year, $17.8 million qualifying offer to become a free agent, but his representatives met with the Cardinals on Tuesday to explore a multi-year contract. Ozuna has had early interest from at least half a dozen teams, including the Reds, according to two sources. The White Sox and Rangers are also interested, and the Braves are another possible suitor. St. Louis would like to clear paths to playing time in the outfield for their younger players. Ozuna has hit .262 with a .451 slugging percentage, .777 OPS and 52 home runs. He's expressed to the Cardinals that his preference is to remain with the team as their cleanup hitter.

Yadier Molina Seeking Contract Extension?

Sources have intimated that St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina could be seeking an extension to his contract and would be willing to take a pay cut from his current $20 million per season. It was believed that the final year of Molina's current contract in 2020 would be his final in the majors, but that could change if he reaches an extension with the Red Birds. The 37-year-old doesn't have a ton left with the bat at this point in his career, but he remains a fine defensive backstop and is a fan favorite. He hit .270/.312/.399 with 10 home runs and 57 RBI in his 419 at-bats last season. You definitely shouldn't expect a return to the 20-homer mark, something he's done just twice in his career.

Adam Wainwright Back in St. Louis for the 2020 Season

The St. Louis Cardinals re-signed starting pitcher Adam Wainwright to a one-year contract. Financial terms have not yet been revealed, but this move was mostly a formality, as Cardinals President of Baseball Operations John Mozeliak told reporters a while ago that Wainwright would be sticking with the only major league team he's even played for. Wainwright was solid in 2019, posting a 4.19 ERA and decent strikeout numbers (8.02 K/9). He's more valuable to the Cardinals than to a fantasy team, but he could provide some back-of-the-rotation value in deeper leagues and NL-only formats.

Adam Wainwright Plans To Return In 2020

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright plans to return to the team in 2020, according to president of baseball operations John Mozeliak. The 38-year-old right-hander bounced back in 2019 to post better numbers than his three previous seasons, going 14-10 with a 4.19 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 8.0 K/9 in 171 2/3 innings over 31 starts. He can still be an effective streaming option in deeper leagues if he sticks in the rotation next season, but Waino's upside has clearly diminished since his days as a perennial Cy Young contender. St. Louis has other rotation options at their disposal if Wainwright struggles.

Dakota Hudson Bombs As Cards Get Swept

St. Louis Cardinals starter Dakota Hudson lasted only 1/3 of an inning in Game 4 of the NLCS, allowing seven runs as the Cardinals were eliminated by the Nationals. Hudson was on the ropes early, then an error in the infield coupled with miscommunication in the outfield leading to a dropped fly ball and the flood gates burst open. Just like that, the Cardinals hopes of extending the season were soured. All in all, it was a breakout campaign for the 25-year-old. This performance will sting but Hudson heads into the offseason going 16-7 with a 3.35 ERA in the regular season.
