MLB Cardinals Rumors: St. Louis to Target Alex Gordon, Out on Heyward
The St. Louis Cardinals are said to be out of the running for Jason Heyward, as reported by Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.
Bob Nightengal of USA Today is now reporting that the Cardinals will “aggressively pursue” Alex Gordon now that they are no long able to re-sign Heyward.
Offensively Alex Gordon is as good, if not better than Jason Heyward. He has a career .348 on-base-percentage with moderate power. His power numbers, however, could jump outside of Kauffman Stadium.
The Jason Heyward sweepstakes now appears to be down to the Cubs, Nationals, and possibly the Angels.
