We are starting to hit the stretch run of the 2019 MLB season, and the St. Louis Cardinals are currently in the thick of the playoff race, tied for first place in the NL Central with the hated Chicago Cubs. This may come as a surprise to a few fans, considering the fact that the Cardinals have had a starved offense for most of the season. There are only two guys currently with an OPS above .800. One of those guys, Marcell Ozuna, will be hitting the market this offseason.
Back in December of 2017, the Cardinals made a blockbuster trade, acquiring Marcell Ozuna from the rebuilding Miami Marlins in exchange for a bundle of prospects including Magnerius Sierra, Zac Gallen, and All-Star Sandy Alcantara.
