QUESTION: Does Weaver have any trade value, given his poor performance? Any free-agent pitching available that excites you?

COMMISH: Patrick Corbin of Arizona excites me. Luke Weaver used to excite me. He would have no trade value now and I wouldn't be surprised to see him open next season in Class AAA. It would be wise for Weaver to come up with another pitch.

Follow-up: What type of player could you receive for Weaver, Kelly, and a mid-level prospect?

COMMISH: Right now, not much. Weaver and Kelly would have to have a little more success before the Cardinals could expect much of a return.
