St. Louis Cardinals Rumors: Pricing Out Huston Street

The St. Louis Cardinals can afford Huston Street. That's not an issue; the rumor mills have an embarrassment of prospects to tie up with the San Diego Padres reliever, if they're so inclined, thanks to the Cardinals' outstanding drafting under the recently departed Jeff Luhnow. Oscar Taveras, Shelby Miller, Kolten Wong, and Carlos Martinez are probably off the table, but that leaves a ton of prospects who aren't.

For all that, though, it's no sure thing the Cardinals will trade for the best example of this year's reliever crop. The way you get prospect-rich--especially Warren Buffett-level prospect-rich, like the Cardinals are--is by being a bit of a miser. So what does a top-notch reliever cost on the trade market?

If I had to guess, something less than Matt Adams but more than Zack Cox. A player like Joe Kelly, who could be a starter but is also a very-close-to-the-majors relief prospect, would make a lot of sense as part of a deal for Street if he weren't, you know, in the Cardinals' rotation. How much would you offer for Street?
