Sources: Cards add longtime Giants INF Crawford


The St. Louis Cardinals are signing longtime San Francisco Giants infielder Brandon Crawford, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Monday, confirming multiple reports.

The deal is pending the completion of a physical.

Crawford, 37, is expected to compete for a backup infield spot, likely behind rookie shortstop Masyn Winn.

Crawford, a three-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove winner, has played all 13 of his big league seasons with the Giants, who selected the UCLA product in the fourth round of the 2008 draft.

In 2021, when he won his fourth Gold Glove, Crawford hit .298/.373/.522 with 24 home runs and 90 RBIs and finished fourth in voting for the National League MVP award.
