St. Louis Cardinals Breaking News

Matt Carpenter and the Cardinals just agreed to a little ole’ extension

The St. Louis Cardinals announced a mysterious press conference for today at 3:00pm. Since everyone is signing extensions nowadays, that seemed to be the popular guess as to the reason. Turns out we were right. At the press conference the Cardinals announced they have agreed to a contract extension with Matt Carpenter. The Cardinals drafted Carpenter back in 2009 and he has been with the team ever since, making his debut in 2011. In 2012 he got his first real taste in the big leagues as the Cardinals toughest bench bat. He broke out for real in 2013 and has not looked back. In eight seasons with the Birdos he has amassed 28.5 fWAR and put up a 132 wRC+. 2019 marks his age 33 season, keeping him a Cardinal until he is at least 35, hopefully 36 (because that would mean he has played well enough to trigger the vesting option).

Wait...Wieters? What?

The Cardinals made a move today to add a veteran backup catcher of fairly high quality. It’s strange that it feels so strange to see this happen.

The Cardinals and Adam Wainwright agree to a deal for 2019 - UPDATED

The specifics are unknown, though according to Saxon: "That Mozeliak quote makes it sound like it’s an incentive-laden deal." The 2019 season will mark his fifteenth season in the Majors, all of them being with the St. Louis Cardinals. We will keep you posted as more information is released! As of now, Adam Wainwright will be a Cardinal in 2019. UPDATE October 12: According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, the contract with Waino is for one year at "an undisclosed low base salary, but two sources described how his new contract is rich in incentives". Goold also wrote that Wainwright will prepare for a starters role to start the 2019 season, but his contract is written to assure "he’ll be rewarded regardless of his role — which could be starter or reliever".
