Report: Nolan Arenado trade talks to Cardinals heating up again

A major league source told The Denver Post Thursday night that a deal is “not nearly close,” adding that the Atlanta Braves also might be interested in Arenado.

The coronavirus pandemic, however, dramatically changed baseball’s financial landscape and could alter Arenado’s decision to opt out.

Teams that had shown interest in a possible trade included the Cardinals, Chicago Cubs, Atlanta Braves and Texas Rangers.

Arenado has long maintained that he wants to play for a team that will consistently compete for a playoff berth and a chance to win the World Series.

During Arenado’s eight years in Colorado, the Rockies had just two winnings seasons — in 2017-18 — but never advancing beyond the National League division series.

The iconic Helton played in Colorado for 17 seasons, became the beloved face of the franchise, had his number retired and might end up in the Hall of Fame.
