St. Louis Cardinals Trade Speculation: 6 Sluggers Worth Pursuing at Deadline

With the departure of Albert Pujols, the Cardinals need to add offense at some point this season.

The St. Louis Cardinals lost former NL batting champion Albert Pujols to free agency this offseason.

The slugger led the team in almost every batting category last season, finishing with 37 home runs, 99 RBI and a .299 batting average.

The Cardinals signed Carlos Beltran to (hopefully) add a little more offense, and are relying on Matt Holliday, Lance Berkman and Yadier Molina to continue hitting like they did in 2011.

Still, when the trade deadline nears this summer, St. Louis may still be looking for a proven hitter to strengthen its order for the playoffs.  Several players who could be shopped around at the deadline could be viable options to help the Cardinals in the postseason.
