Cardinals sign David Freese to 1-year deal

February 8th, 2013 in News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals and 2011 World Series MVP David Freese have reached agreement on a one-year contract that avoids salary arbitration.

Terms of the deal announced Friday were not disclosed. The Cardinals have now come to terms with all arbitration-eligible players.

Freese is a St. Louis County native. The third baseman hit .283 with 20 home runs and 79 RBI last season and earned his first All-Star appearance.
