The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

ST. LOUIS | The St. Louis Car­di­nals traded left-han­der Jaime Gar­cia to the At­lanta Braves on Thursday for a trio of prospects, in­clud­ing sec­ond base­man Luke Dyk­stra, the son of for­mer All-Star Lenny Dyk­stra.

The Car­di­nals also got right-han­ders John Gant and Chris El­lis in the deal. Gar­cia has spent his en­tire in­jury-in­ter­rupted ca­reer with the Car­di­nals, go­ing 62-45 with a 3.57 ERA. He was third in rookie of the year vot­ing in 2010, went 13-7 the fol­low­ing sea­son while help­ing St. Louis win the World Se­ries, and threw 171 2/3 in­nings last sea­son — the sec­ond-most of his ca­reer.
