The Cardinals rewarded Matt Carpenter for his great season last year with a six year contract extension. Carpenter is poised to have a huge this year knowing he’s now THE guy. Hard not to like Carpenter in 2014. You know, Jesus was a carpenter…so no pressure or anything.
Carpenter breakdown with #STLCards: $1.5M signing bonus, $1M, $3.5M, $6.25M, $9.75M, $13.5M, $14.5M, $18.5M club option or $2M buyout.
