Goldschmidt debut with the Diamondbacks on August 1, 2011, it has been a great run with Goldie in a Dbacks uniform. He has had an OPS of at least.800 in each of his last eight seasons.

The deal is a game changer for the Cardinals, who acquired not only a middle-of-the-order bat who plays Gold Glove defense, but arguably the best overall first baseman in baseball, and the best position player to wear a Cardinals uniform since Albert Pujols departed in free agency seven years ago. Greinke finished last season with a 15-11 record in 33 starts with a 3.21 ERA.

Kelly has struggled immensely in 63 big league games but is still just 24 years of age.

Young, 24, hit a combined.289 in Double-A and high-A ball. Arizona will also receive a 2019 competitive balance Round B draft pick. Patrick Corbin has a wicked slider that hitters can't seem to connect with. Kelly has six years before being eligible for arbitration and Weaver has five. Center fielder A.J. Pollock remains on the free-agent market but it seems unlikely the Diamondbacks would re-sign him.

It's rebuild mode for Arizona.

Arizona Diamondbacks are leaving their fans in shock with some of the recent roster moves. Greinke came to the Dback after three seasons with the Dodgers.
