The St. Louis Cardinals traded utility infielder Skip Schumaker to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for minor league shortstop Jake Lemmerman on Wednesday.
The 32-year-old Schumaker had spent his entire eight-year career in St. Louis and batted .276 with one homer and 28 RBI in 107 games last season. The Cardinals drafted Schumaker out of UCSB in 2001 after he played two season for the Gauchso.
In 810 big league games, Schumaker has a .288 career average with 23 home runs and 211 RBI. He also adds defensive versatility, having played 412 games at second base and 389 games at various outfield positions.
The California native also has a .278 average with three home runs and six RBI in 22 postseason games.
