Freese gets $3.15M under 1-year deal with Cards
Sunday, February 10, 2013
ST. LOUIS — Former World Series MVP David Freese will earn $3.15 million under his one-year contract with the St. Louis Cardinals, nearly six times the $518,000 he made last year.
A St. Louis County native, Freese hit .283 with 20 home runs and 79 RBI last season and earned his first All-Star appearance. He was eligible for arbitration for the first time.
Freese, MVP of the 2011 World Series win against Texas, had asked for $3.75 million and had been offered $2.4 million when players and teams exchanged arbitration figures last month.
Friday’s agreement made Freese the final player to settle among the three Cardinals who filed for arbitration.
