Cardinals get their hands on Chasen Shreve
The St. Louis Cardinals took another step in remaking their bullpen by acquiring left-hander Chasen Shreve in a three-player deal with the New York Yankees on Saturday night.
The Cardinals are also getting right-hander Giovanny Gallegos, sending to the Yankees Triple-A first baseman Luke Voit and international cap space. Both teams announced the deal late in the evening.
Shreve, 28, was 2-2 this season with a 4.14 ERA and one save in 39 games for the Yankees, who this week added former Baltimore Orioles closer Zach Britton to a deep bullpen that already featured close Aroldis Chapman and right-handers Dellin Betances and David Robertson.
Shreve is in his fifth major league season, the first with the Atlanta Braves before four with New York. He has a career record of 14-6 with an ERA of 3.68 in 194 games, all in relief.
The Cardinals said in a statement that Gallegos will be assigned to Triple-A Memphis.
Voit, a second-year player, appeared in eight games for the Cardinals this season after playing in 62 games for them a season ago. In a combined 137 plate appearances, he is hitting .240 with five home runs and 21 RBIs.
