ST. LOUIS -- 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 RBIs last season and earned his first All-Star appearance.
