Cardinals sign INF Ty Wigginton for Two Years, $5 million

The St. Louis Cardinals and infielder Ty Wigginton reached a two-year, $5 million agreement yesterday, as reported by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, which will pay the veteran $2.5 million in 2013 and 2014.


Wigginton became a free agent this offseason when the Philadelphia Phillies declined his $4 million team option for the 2013 season, instead opting for a $500,000 buyout.

Wigginton has the ability to play all over the infield as well as the outfield. Last season with the Phillies he hit .235/.314/.375 with 11 doubles and 11 home runs while manning first and third base as well as left field. The 35-year-old also has experience in right field and second base.

While Wigginton has hit a respectable .263/.324/.438 over his 11-year career, the veteran owns a line of .270/.354/.456 versus left-handed pitching.
