ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Cardinals and general manager John Mozeliak have agreed to a three-year contract extension.
A news conference announcing the extension was scheduled for Thursday afternoon. A club source confirmed the deal.
Mozeliak, who is 40, was hired as GM in 2007 after Walt Jocketty was dismissed at the conclusion of that season. Jocketty is now general manager of Cincinnati, the team the Cardinals are chasing in the NL Central.
Mozeliak's big move so far was last season's acquisition of Matt Holliday from Oakland, and signing Holliday during the offseason to a seven-year deal.
