Blue Jays acquire Grichuk from Cardinals in exchange for Leone, Greene

Cardinals trade OF Grichuk to Jays

The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired outfielder Randal Grichuk from the St. Louis Cardinals. A CT native, Leone was drafted by Seattle in 2012 (16 round) out of Clemson University and made his Major League debut with the M's in 2014 when he put together a solid rookie season, going 8-2 with a 2.17 ERA in 57 games (66.1 IP) with 70 strikeouts.

In exchange for Grichuk, the Cardinals receive right-handed pitchers Dominic Leone and Conner Greene.

The Cardinals, meanwhile, will add an established middle-relief option to their bullpen in Leone, who posted an impressive 2.56 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 70.1 innings of work last season for the Jays.

Alabama's Saban lands new offensive coordinator
Nick Saban instead went with the coach who is already in tune with the Alabama's national championship offense. The 48-year-old reportedly had an opportunity to join Florida State's staff but elected to stay at Alabama.

Leone, a 2009 NFA graduate, played at Clemson for three years and was drafted by the Mariners in the 16th round in 2012.

Grichuk, 26, appeared in 122 games for the Cardinals last season, hitting.238, with 22 home runs, 59 RBI and an OPS of.758.

The 22-year-old Greene went 5-10 for Double-A New Hampshire last season, striking out 92 through 132.2 innings. He became expendable after St. Louis got big-hitting left fielder Marcell Ozuna in a trade with Miami last month, and because of the emergence of Tommy Pham in center.
