    Cardinals get a left handed, high on base outfielder to lead off. Mets get a rotation piece for when Stroman leaves next year and a minor league pitcher.

      I’d argue Conforto’s pending free agency is more of a concern than Stroman’s, so I don’t think they’d trade a high-quality outfielder like Nimmo as long as there’s no extension for Conforto. With deGrom, Carrasco, Walker and Peterson all under control into 2022, they could more easily handle a Stroman departure. No Nimmo and Conforto in the 2022 outfield would leave them in really bad shape. The 21-22 free agent outfield market is pretty bad, and the Mets don’t have a lot of near-ready outfield talent in the minors, and a mediocre farm system would make it difficult to upgrade the outfield via trade.

        I was really just looking for a left handed outfield bat for the Cardinals with them trading from a position of depth. Fortunately, that works with outfielders as well. I teetered between Dominic Smith and Brandon Nimmo, and the other trade I would’ve propose would be Dominic Smith for Harrison Bader and Jhon Torres. The Mets have a plethora of left handed hitting outfielders and the Cardinals have too many right handed hitting outfield prospects. I actually have general concerns about Brandon Nimmo’s inability to stay healthy for an entire season. When healthy, he’s extremely productive… he just never seems to be healthy. I would actually prefer to trade for Dominic Smith instead.

          Right, I just don’t think the Mets are interested in trading either of those guys. They make of 2/3 of the Mets starting outfield (Almora and Pillar are not starting-caliber outfielders). The trade may fill a need for the Cardinals, but creates a hole for the Mets.

          Nimmo gets a bum rap for his health. His last significant injury occurred after a collision with an outfield wall. He appears fully healed. He doesn’t otherwise have any recurring issues, so no reason to consider him injury-prone.
