Cardinals signed RHP Carlos Martinez to a five-year, $51 million contract extension with club options for 2022 and 2023.
Those options are worth $17 million and $18 million, respectively, with a $500,000 buyout on each. Martinez will earn $4.5 million in 2017 -- what would have been his first year of arbitration eligibility -- and then $11.5 million annually from 2018-2021. It's the richest contract ever for a first-year arbitration player, but the St. Louis front office has to feel pretty good about potentially locking down four of El Gallo's free agent years. If the 25-year-old Dominican right-hander continues to progress on schedule, it'll turn out to be a very team-friendly deal. Feb 2 - 11:37 AM
