Cardinals agree to deals with Jay, Bourjos and Descalso
Saturday, January 18, 2014
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Cardinals agreed to one-year contracts Friday with outfielders Jon Jay and Peter Bourjos, leaving infielder Daniel Descalso as the team’s final player in salary arbitration.
The 28-year-old Jay set career highs last season with 151 hits, 67 RBI and 27 doubles.
Jay, who has hit .293 during the last four seasons, set a franchise record with 245 consecutive games in the outfield without an error and has a .995 fielding percentage.
The 26-year-old Bourjos appeared in just 55 games for the Los Angeles Angels during an injury-shortened 2013 season. He was hitting .333 on June 30 when he broke his right wrist.
Bourjos was acquired by the Cardinals in November along with outfielder Randal Grichuk for infielder David Freese and pitcher Fernando Salas.
