Trade #5: St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies
Cardinals get: Mickey Moniak
Phillies get: Dexter Fowler
The Phillies need outfield help. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. With Andrew McCutchen and Odubel Herrera done for the year, and Jay Bruce currently on the shelf, the Phillies are watching their postseason hopes slip through their fingers. Fowler has gotten on base at a near .360 clip, making him a desirable top-of-the-order bat.
Moniak (Philadelphia #9) was the No. 1 overall pick of the 2016 draft but stumbled hard out of the gate. Most have written him off as a major draft bust, but he has quietly improved his stock while beginning to drive the ball into the gaps in Double A. Moniak would be an exciting high ceiling, high floor prospect to energize the St. Louis fan base.
