According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the St. Louis Cardinals are interested in high-end starters, which includes free agents Yu Darvish and Jake Arrieta.

Fantasy Impact

Heyman adds that the Cardinals will first look to add a starter via the trade market. It certainly appears St. Louis is looking to be active this winter. They have also been linked to Giancarlo Stanton. Darvish and Arrieta are the top two starters available in free agency, aside from Shohei Otani.

Yu Darvish hit hard by Astros

Yu Darvish allowed four runs on six hits in just 1 2/3 innings, taking the loss in Game 3 of the World Series versus the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Darvish walked one and failed to strike anyone out. He induced just one swing and miss the entire time he was out there. Simply put, Darvish didn't have his best stuff in this one. He didn't even have average stuff. The impending free agent likely won't pitch again until Game 7 if necessary.
