Unvaccinat­ed Cards stars out vs. Jays


Two of the Cardinals’ best players, third baseman Nolan Arenado, pictured, and first baseman Paul Goldschmid­t, won’t be making the trip to Toronto for a short series with the Blue Jays because they haven’t received the COVID-19 vaccinatio­n. The Cardinals announced Sunday that catcher Austin Romine also will not be going to Canada with the team for its Tuesday and Wednesday games. Canada has restrictio­ns on travelers who aren’t vaccinated against COVID-19. Arenado, Goldschmid­t and Romine will be placed on the restricted list and forfeit pay and major league service time in accordance with the terms of MLB’s collective bargaining agreement. Arenado will lose $384,416, Goldschmid­t $241,758 and Romine $10,989. Goldschmid­t leads the Cardinals in most offensive categories, including batting average (.333), home runs (22), RBIs (74), on-base percentage (.416) and hits (116). Arenado has 102 hits, 18 home runs and 59 RBIs. Romine joined the Cardinals earlier this season as backup for the injured Yadier Molina, who is expected to rejoin the team next month.
