Cardinals sign Matt Carpenter to 6-year extension

Jupiter, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The St. Louis Cardinals have signed infielder Matt Carpenter to a six-year contract extension reportedly worth $52 million.

The deal runs through 2019 and includes a club option for the 2020 season.

"We are pleased to have reached an agreement that insures Matt will remain a Cardinal on a long-term basis," said Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt, Jr. "He is an All-Star caliber player, and an integral part of the nucleus of this club which we feel can continue to contend for championships in 2014 and beyond."

Carpenter is coming off a breakout 2013 season in which he hit .318 with 11 home runs and 78 RBI while leading the majors in hits (199), runs scored (126) and doubles (55).

An All-Star second baseman last season, Carpenter will make the switch to third base this season. Rookie Kolten Wong will be St. Louis' primary second baseman.
