Cards to reveal extension for OF Stephen Piscotty

St. Louis gave another of its young players a long-term contract, agreeing to a $33.5 million, six-year deal with right fielder Stephen Piscotty.

Piscotty will join Carlos Martinez and Molina as long-term extensions and with the acquisition of Dexter Fowler and Brett Cecil this offseason, the Cardinals have now spent almost $260 million headed into the 2017 season.

Piscotty is not yet arbitration eligible.

All-Star catcher Yadier Molina and the St. Louis Cardinals have finalized a new contract adding $60 million over three seasons through 2020. It runs through 2022 with an option for 2023, the New York Post reports. General manager John Mozeliak also locked up starting pitcher Carlos Martinez to a five-year, $51 million deal in February.

Piscotty entered the 2017 season with one year and 76 days of major-league service time.

With former Chicago Cubs' leadoff hitter Dexter Fowler now slated in center field with Randal Grichuk manning left field, the 26-year-old Piscotty has emerged as the club's everyday right fielder.

He made his debut for St. Louis in 2015 and finished sixth in the NL Rookie of the Year voting after hitting.305 in 63 games. "We look forward to him becoming a fixture in a Cardinals uniform".

"This was a pretty easy decision for me", Piscotty said. He was 1-for-3 in the Cardinals' season-opening win over the Cubs on Sunday. The Cardinals prefer to make such deals with players when they also include some free agent years.
