The St. Louis Cardinals are in desperate need of a quality left-handed bullpen arm. Who could they pursue out of house?

The St. Louis Cardinals sent Luke Voit to the Yankees for one left-handed arm already and they should target yet another.

Suppose we strike out on Miller and Watson. We will still need a lefty bullpen arm obliviously. Zach Britton could be another reliable option. Britton, dealing with an injury-filled 2018 season, has been very solid since being traded from the Baltimore Orioles since the trade deadline.

More from St Louis Cardinals Rumors

With New York, he sports a 2.88 ERA over 25 innings pitched. Best part? He can also close games as well. He currently is not closing with the New York Yankees, but he still has the ability to finish games.

Since the St. Louis Cardinals need a closer, we could kill two Cubs with one stone here. His play in the postseason will be a huge factor in his value for whenever it’s time for his payday in December.

This has been the third consecutive year that the St. Louis Cardinals will be excluded from October baseball, ownership is starting to take note. John Mozeilak’s job could be on the line this offseason, so it’s time for him to have his best offseason since he has arrived in St. Louis.

Lefty bullpen arms would be a huge start for this team.
