Update: The Cardinals and Matt Carpenter are in agreement on a multi-year extension.

Following a breakout 2013 season, the Cardinals are now looking to lockup their starting third basemen with a very lucrative deal. It was reported yesterday the deal would be a six-year contract worth no less than $50 million in total. This would guarantee Carpenter would be with the club through the prime of his career, which great news for prospective fantasy owners for 2014 and beyond. ANALYST: Matthew Beck Mobile App
