JUPITER, Fla -- The Cardinals have scheduled a press conference for 11am local time (10am in St. Louis) here in Florida at their complex inside Roger Dean Stadium.
The announcement is expected to be a multi-year contract extension for IF Matt Carpenter.
Reports had surfaced over the last few days the Cardinals would ink the 28-year old to a deal. The leadoff man hit .318 a season ago with a .392 on-base percentage.
Meanwhile, as the Cardinals prepare to face the Nationals here in Jupiter, no lineup has yet been posted. Check back to KMOV.com and Baseball STL for updates.
