JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Felipe Lopez is back with the St. Louis Cardinals after agreeing to a one-year, $1 million contract.
After taking his physical Saturday, Lopez bounded into the Cardinals clubhouse ready to work in the batting cages before the rest of the squad took the field.
St. Louis General Manager John Mozeliak said signing Lopez gives the team more flexibility in the infield. He can make up to $1.2 million in bonuses.
Lopez played for the Cardinals during the 2008 season. He it .385 with four home runs in 43 games for St. Louis. Splitting time between Arizona and Milwaukee last year, Lopez hit .310 with nine home runs.
