The St. Louis Cardinals enter 2018 looking to return to the postseason for the first time since 2015. In the off-season the Cardinals traded for slugger Marcell Ozuna from the Miami Marlins, which should solidify the middle of the lineup. Ozuna, a two-time All-Star, hit .312 with 37 home runs and 124 RBI’s last season in Miami. His ability to hit for average and power will be a welcomed addition to the St. Louis lineup.
Ozuna joins Tommy Pham and Dexter Fowler in a much improved Cardinals outfield. Also, infielders Jedd Gyorko, Paul DeJong, and Matt Carpenter all have 20+ home run potential. Together the Cardinals have a well balanced and powerful lineup for 2018. And of course, Yadier Molina has been a consistent force for the Cardinals behind the plate. His presence and leadership is always essential to the Cardinals’ success.
In the rotation, Carlos Martinez has fully established himself as the ace of this pitching staff. Martinez is a two-time All-Star with a nasty curveball and a dominant fastball that can come close to reaching triple digits. Mike Matheny will rely upon bounceback seasons from starting pitchers Adam Wainwright and Michael Wacha. As one of the Cardinals more intriguing young pitchers, 24-year old Luke Weaver will look to expand upon his success from last season.
