Arizona Diamondbacks: Ketel Marte
If the Cardinals find themselves in need of a shortstop or second baseman this season, getting a player of the caliber of Ketel Marte could be fun.
In 2021, Marte hit .318/.377/.532 with a +139 wRC, 14 home runs, 50 RBI, 29 doubles, and 31 walks in 90 games played. He had a hard-hit rate of 48.4% and only had 60 strikeouts with a 16% K-rate. He had an average exit velocity of 91.1 mph, a 1.9 mph increase over 2020.
This season will be the last of a five-year deal worth $24 million, although he will have club options for 2023 and 2024. The switch hitter will enter his age 28 season this year. He is currently day-to-day with irritation in his left eye that is preventing him from fully participating in baseball activity.
