Stephen Piscotty, a right fielder for the St. Louis Cardinals, bought a home in Creve Coeur for $1.35 million last July.
A deal was finalized Thursday to trade Piscotty to the Oakland Athletics. Piscotty told ESPN that he requested the trade to be closer to his mother, who has ALS. In exchange for Piscotty, the Cardinals will receive shortstop Yairo Munoz and second baseman Max Schrock.
The four-bedroom home has six bathrooms and totals 3,682 square feet. Built in 1988, the kitchen features granite counters, a five-burner Wolf gas stove, a sub-zero refrigerator, a wine cooler and a breakfast room with doors that lead to the back terrace. The home has a fireplace, patio, in-ground pool, waterfall, hot tub, finished basement and hardwood floors.
