According to the New York Post, the Cardinals are set to acquire SS Khalil Greene from the Padres in exchange for two relief prospects. The Padres have been frustrated with Greene's performance for the past several seasons and trading him will not only clear up cash, but give them two solid prospects in return. The Cardinals, who miss out on Edgar Renteria, now have a shortstop for 2009 who could potential be trade bait at the deadline if Peter Kozma can prove he is ready.
As for the Padres, it is believed they have asked for Cubs SS Ronny Cedeno to be included in a deal for Jake Peavy, so he could potentially take over if the deal actually goes through.
