    Nolan Arenado to the Cardinals.

    The St. Louis Cardinals have acquired third baseman Nolan Arenado in a trade with the Colorado Rockies, sources confirmed to ESPN's Jeff Passan.

    The Rockies are getting multiple players in the deal and will send upward of $50 million to St. Louis, sources said.

    The news was first reported by The Athletic.

    Arenado, 29, is scheduled to make $35 million in 2021 as part of a $260 million, eight-year contract he signed with the Rockies in 2019. The deal includes an opt-out clause after the '21 season.

    A five-time All-Star, Arenado struggled at the plate during the abbreviated 2020 season, hitting .253 with eight homers before missing the final nine games with a left shoulder bone bruise. He also earned an eighth straight Gold Glove.

    The down year came after he hit a career-best .315 with 41 homers and 118 RBIs in 2019.

    In December, Rockies manager Bud Black downplayed rumors that Arenado and shortstop Trevor Story would be traded, saying, "My expectation is that they'll be with us come Opening Day."

    The Rockies have missed the playoffs the past two seasons after making the wild-card round in 2017 and the NLDS in 2018.

    They had to send 50 million to get rid of him. That might the most I've ever seen.

    Unless he's shot...he was banged up last year, COL seems to think he's finished, STL could owe $$$ for awhile here.

    Didn't Paglirullo lose all his power and bat speed after a num injury like this back in late 80s?

    Rockies are cheapskates. They realized with their pitching and how tough their division is with the Padres and Dodgers both being stacked that mb they should dump their gigantic contract
