After landing OF Jason Heyward, GM John Mozeliak will turn his attention to filling other roster needs for 2015.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch Nov 19, 2014
The team's new outfielder can become a free agent after the 2015 season. How far will Cardinals' management go in the effort to keep him?
Braves Journal Nov 18, 2014
So, there was a blockbuster trade, where the Braves and Cardinals swapped one year of a talented but fragile left-handed right-fielder for a young Southern fireballing right-handed pitching prospect. If you started thinking that the Jason Heyward-Shelby Miller trade is slightly reminscent of the J.D. Drew/Adam Wainwright trade, you’re not wrong. One main difference is […]

On Monday, the Braves shipped away one of their most productive hitters, Jason Heyward, and a flame-throwing reliever, Jordan Walden, for two young arms. The Braves need to bolster the roster in many areas, including starting pitching. Trading one year of control of Heyward, who didn’t appear likely to be given a contract extension, and two years of Walden for four years of starter Shelby Miller and six years of pitching prospect Tyrell Jenkins makes sense for the Braves.

Jason Heyward is only 25 years old and he could be in line for the best seasons of his career.

The Cardinals' win-now trade increases payroll in 2015. The St. Louis Cardinals traded starting pitcher Shelby Miller and pitching prospect Tyrell Jenkins to the Atlanta Braves on Monday in exchange for right fielder Jason Heyward and righthanded reliever Jordan Walden. Adding Heyward to the roster solidifies right field for the Cardinals in 2015, a position that was turned into a question mark after the death of 22-year-old outfielder Oscar Taveras, and acquiring Walden gives St. Louis a righthanded setup man to replace departing free agent Pat Neshek. Trading Miller away creates an...

The Cardinals traded for Jason Heyward and Jordan Walden, giving up Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins. The Cardinals transformed their roster this morning, trading away former top prospect and two-year starter Shelby Miller along with prospect Tyrell Jenkins for Jason Heyward and bullpen arm Jordan Walden. Aaron Finkel wrote the initial analysis for the site. Aaron summed it up thusly: The downside here is that Heyward walks and Jenkins or Miller become a star. The upside is that the Cardinals likely just made a marked improvement to their 2015 squad by dealing from depth while getting a...

(USAToday Photo)OF Jason Heyward was traded by the Braves to the Cardinals today for—frankly—not all that much. St. Louis sent Shelby Miller (a marginal starter at best) and another prospect to Atlanta for Heyward and a decent pitching prospect. Despite the relatively low price for Heyward, the Red Sox—according to WEEI.com—were never in on the talks. Heyward is a left-handed bat (a Boston need), a good right-field defender and can steal bases. But, apparently, the glut of outfielders on the current Boston roster and the reluctance to part with any prospects kept the Red Sox on the...

Russell Martin won't be coming back to the Dodgers.

ATLANTA - The Atlanta Braves traded outfielder Jason Heyward and relief pitcher Jordan Walden to the St. Louis Cardinals in exchange for pitchers Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins.
Full Count | WEEI Nov 17, 2014
In some respects, it made some sense. Even with a glut of outfielders, the Red Sox‘ rumored interest in Braves outfielder Jason Heyward seemed plausible. If there was some juggling to the roster, a case to trade for the lefty hitter could be made. Heyward will be eligible for free agency following the 2015 season, […]

The Atlanta Braves have dealt outfielder Jason Heyward and reliever Jordan Walden to the St. Louis Cardinals for pitcher Shelby Miller and a minor-leaguer.
Where have you gone, Andy Van Slyke? Nov 17, 2014
According Peter Gammons, Russell Martin has signed a five-year deal with the Blue Jays for “McCann money,” which means that he’s probably getting close to the $75 million he reportedly set out to get at the beginning of the off-season. Meanwhile, the Cardinals and Braves announced that they’ve completed a four-player swap that involves Shelby Miller going to the Braves and Jason Heyward going to the Cardinals. These are two disparate events, and I have quite a bit to say about them, but I have a lot of lab work to do today. I’ll have more later. My initial analysis is: I hate...

The Cardinals have reportedly traded Shelby Milller and Tyrell Jenkins for Jason Heyward and Jordan Walden #stlcards announce they've acquired OF Jason Heyward and RHP Jordan Walden for RHP Shelby Miller and RHP Tyrell Jenkins. — Jenifer Langosch (@LangoschMLB) November 17, 2014 The Cardinals appear to have solved the question in right field by acquiring Jason Heyward from the Braves for Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins. The Cardinals will also receive Jordan Walden, a high strikeout right-handed reliever who won't reach free agency until 2017. Heyward, just 25 years-old, has yet to...
