Freese to Earn $3.15M

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Former World

Series MVP David Freese will earn $3.15 million under his one-year contract

with the St. Louis Cardinals, nearly six times the $518,000 he made last year.

A St. Louis County native, Freese hit .283

with 20 home runs and 79 RBIs last season and earned his first All-Star

appearance. He was eligible for arbitration for the first time.

Freese, MVP of the 2011 World Series win

over Texas, had asked for $3.75 million and had been offered $2.4 million when

players and teams exchanged arbitration figures last month.

Friday's

agreement made Freese the final player to settle among the three Cardinals who

filed for arbitration.
