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
5 year deal with an option for the 6th. Still no word on the $$$
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

Definitely a team friendly contract IMO. Great deal and look forward to watching Wong get better and improve every year.
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!
Lock up Rosey and Grichuk also.
