Cardinals agree to contracts with 24 players

JUPITER, Fla. — Postseason stars David Freese and Allen Craig will make slightly more than the major league minimum this season for the St. Louis Cardinals, who agreed to one-year contracts with 24 players.

Freese, the National League championship series and World Series MVP, will make $508,000, just $28,000 more than the minimum $480,000. If the 28-year-old third baseman from St. Louis County is optioned to the minors he'd make $249,600.

Craig also gets a split contract. He will make $495,000 in the majors and $248,400 if he is optioned. Craig, who hit three homers in the World Series last year, gives the Cardinals another option in the outfield but will miss at least the first month of the season while recovering from a knee surgery.

The St. Louis Cardinals announced the deals Wednesday.
