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.
