ST. LOUIS, Mo. – One day after the Cardinals completed a trade to send outfielders Jose Martinez and Randy Arozarena to the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for minor league pitcher Matthew Liberatore, a minor league catcher and a draft pick, Carlos Martinez took to Instagram to salute his former teammates.

“Two brothers, colleagues and friends leave the family @stlcardenales but there will be memories and joy never forgotten,” the translated post read in part.

To Jose Martinez, Carlos wrote, “@cafejr40 My little brother good luck and blessings. Really a great honor to be your teammate brother, you know I love you like my blood.”

Arozarena replied, “Thanks my brother, blessings to you Tsunami and family.”
