ST. LOUIS, Mo. (BaseballStL) -- The St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday morning traded for Brandon Moss, a left handed hitting outfielder/first baseman from the Cleveland Indians.

In return, the Cardinals will send top pitching prospect Rob Kaminsky to the Indians, according to a tweet from the St. Louis Cardinals.

Moss is batting .217 with 15 homeruns in 94 games this season with the Indians. Moss, who was an All-Star in 2014, is expected to join the team for tonight's game and wear number 21.

Kaminsky, who was featured in a report earlier this year, is considered a top prospect for the Cardinals.
