    Kolten Wong Extention

    Kolten just got a 5 year extention. Don't have a link or numbers yet... just saw it on MLBTR.

    So that covers 1 non arb year, 3 arb years, and 1 free agency year

    25.5 million over the next 5 years with 12.5 option for year 6

    2016 1 million
    2017 2 million
    2018 5 million
    2019 8 million
    2020 9.5 million
    2021 12.5 million option

    Thats my guess for salary



    Regardless of when the money is spent, thats a great deal for STL in my opinion

    That's an exceptional deal



    Even if Wong stays at this level player it's great. If he progresses how we expect this could easily be one of the best deals in Cardinal history

    Definitely a team friendly contract IMO. Great deal and look forward to watching Wong get better and improve every year.

    Looks good

    He is getting

    16 - 1.25
    17 - 2.5
    18 - 4
    19 - 6.5
    20 - 10.25
    21 - club option for 12.5/1 buy-out

    He would have easily achieved those dollars in arb, and I feel like 10.25 is a deal for that free agent year.

    He could perform like the last two years, improve none, and this is a good deal for us. I am very happy about this extension.

    Now, lock up Wacha and Martinez in similar fashions!
