Earlier: Cards reach deal with Wainwright
JUPITER, Fla. • After almost two months of talking about Adam Wainwright as the unmatched ace of the staff and talking to Wainwright about a long-term contract, the Cardinals agreed with the righthander on a deal Wednesday that turns all that talking into permanence.
Wainwright and the Cardinals reached an agreement on a five-year, $97.5 million extension, two sources with knowledge of the deal told the Post-Dispatch.
The contract will keep the righty a fixture in the rotation through 2018.
