ST. LOUIS, MO- The St. Louis Cardinals have traded Jedd Gyorko to the Los Angeles Dodgers just before the MLB trade deadline. The team has acquired left-handed pitcher Tony Cingrani and minor league right-handed pitcher Jeffry Abreu from the Dodgers in exchange. The Dodgers also get 2019-20 International Cap Space and cash considerations.

Gyorko has not played since June 7, dealing with lower back trouble, a calf strain, and then wrist surgery. He was moved to the 60-day injured list on Tuesday and the Cardinals pulled him back from a planned rehab assignment.

Cingrani hasn’t pitched this season following left shoulder surgery.
