St. Louis Cardinals: How the Hamels and Wheeler deals effect the team

I believe that the St. Louis Cardinals’ front office plans to come into the 2020 season with the current five starting pitchers that all of us know. Jack Flaherty, Carlos Martinez, Miles Mikolas, Dakota Hudson, and Adam Wainwright have plenty of potential to repeat the performance the group put forth last season, but after these five the depth drops off.

So that the team doesn’t have to rely on all their starters staying healthy, a lot of smart minds have said that the team needs to at least explore going after either a backup option or (with the robust starting pitching free agent class), go after an upgrade.
