Cards Trade Bader

St. Louis struck just minutes before the trade deadline at 5 p.m. CT on Tuesday by trading outfielder Harrison Bader to the Yankees for left-handed starting pitcher Jordan Montgomery.

Bader has been out of game action since late June as he has dealt with soreness stemming from plantar fasciitis. Due to reach free agency after the 2023 season, the 28-year-old Bader had become somewhat expendable in recent weeks as Dylan Carlson has handled the defensive duties of the center field position with aplomb in Bader’s absence.
