JUPITER, FL – The St. Louis Cardinals have reportedly agreed to an extension with first basemen Paul Goldschmidt for five years at $130 million.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Derrick Goold reports that the deal is to be finalized by Saturday, pending a physical.

Goldschmidt, 31, is entering the final year of the six-year, $44 million contract he signed with the D-backs and would have become a free agent after the 2019 season. The Cardinals traded for him in December in exchange for Luke Weaver, Carson Kelly, and Andy Young.
