Cardinals Interested In Todd Frazier, Josh Donaldson The Perfect Fit; Jhonny Peralta Out Of Shape

What the Cardinals really could use is a power-hitting third baseman who could hit third or fourth. There have been some Todd Frazier rumors, but Josh Donaldson is really the perfect fit – if there’s any way the Jays would even consider trading him. The Cardinals don’t have a true 3 or 4 hitter, and in fact, their top two home run hitters are their Nos. 1 and 2 hitters in the lineup – Matt Carpenter and Dexter Fowler (who now has tied last year’s total with 13). For what it’s worth, GM John Mozeliak always had good dealings with Mark Shapiro when he was with the Indians (but as stipulated, it’s a long shot).
