ST. LOUIS (AP) —is Cardinals have agreed to a contract that adds $37 million in guaranteed money for 2020 and ’21 , a deal that includes an option for 2022.The 33-year-old has a $14.5 million salary this season a part of a $52 million, six-year deal that included an $18.5 million club option for 2020 with a $2 million buyout.Under the new $39 million, two-year deal, he has guaranteed salaries of $18.5 million in both 2020 and ’21, and the Cardinals have an $18.5 million option for 2022 with a $2 million buyout. The 2022 salary would become guaranteed if he has 1,100 plate appearances combined in 2020 and ’21, including at least 550 in ’21.If the option fails to become guaranteed, it becomes a club option that includes $6.5 million in possible escalators based on 2021 plate appearances: $500,000 for 350, and $1 million each for 400 and each additional 50 through 650.He also gets a full no-trade provision and award bonuses that include $250,000 for making the All-Star team.“It’s really very humbling Bill Mazeroski Jersey ,” Carpenter said after Wednesday’s announcement. “To be able to potentially be here for an entire career is something that I don’t take for granted. Every day it’s something that I try to live up to.”He has a .273 batting average with 134 home runs and a .376 on base percentage in 1,031 games since debuting in 2011 with the Cardinals. Carpenter was an All-Star in 2013, 2014, and 2016. He finished among the top 10 in MVP voting in 2013 and last year.“He’s created enormous flexibility for the Cardinals because he was always willing to play a different position to allow us to maximize our team,” Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said. “Really what it says is he’s truly a team player. So, the reason we’re motivated to try to do this is where he’s at in his career, we wanted him to continue to wear the Cardinal uniform.”Carpenter was a 13th-round draft pick by the Cardinals in 2009. He became the fourth St. Louis player since February to sign a long-term deal after first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, pitcher Miles Mikolas, and first baseman/outfielder José Martinez.“When we get a core player, we like to keep him here,” Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. said.“We’ve made every effort to do that since I’ve been here and before.” Sanchez will be paid $19 million over two years to be Max Scherzer’s teammate again."Remember the good old days when Anibal Sanchez and Max Scherzer were dominating in the same starting rotation? Unfortunately Dave Parker Jersey , those times are long gone for the Detroit Tigers and their fans, but the Washington Nationals might be trying to rekindle some of that magic. The Nats agreed to a two-year contract with Sanchez on Thursday, according to a report from Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press.The Nats will pay Sanchez $19 million over those two seasons, a price that rankled some of their fans. Not only is Sanchez a bit of a regression candidate, but he is actually more expensive than righthander Tanner Roark was projected to be in his final year of arbitration. Roark was traded to the Cincinnati Reds last week, presumably because of his pending 2019 salary obligations. Roark, 32, is nearly three years younger than Sanchez, and has comparable stats over the past two seasons.Sanchez earned his new contract thanks to a stellar 2018 season with the Atlanta Braves. He only made three starts in April and May, but was able to lock down a spot in the Braves’ rotation in June. He stayed hot all year long, managing a 2.83 ERA in 136 2鈦? innings before he was knocked around a bit in his only postseason start.Sanchez’s peripheral numbers weren’t quite as flashy as the sub-3.00 ERA Josh Harrison Jersey , but he was still a well above-average pitcher He maintained solid strikeout and walk numbers yet again — something he was even able to do in his worst years in Detroit — but finally figured out how to cut back on the home runs allowed. This helped him manage a 3.62 FIP and 3.81 xFIP in 25 appearances, good enough for 2.4 fWAR.One of the big reasons for this massive improvement? A change in his pitch mix. Brandon dove deeper into Sanchez’s 2018 season earlier this winter.It’s tough to say how sustainable Sanchez’s newfound ability to miss barrels will be. His two-seam fastball was a problem for his final three years in Detroit — he mysteriously used it more from 2015 to 2017 than he had from 2012 to 2014 — but he dropped that while throwing his cutter nearly three times as often last season.The result? Sanchez’s highest ground ball rate since 2014, which also happened to be the last time he managed an ERA under 4.99.Sanchez could also benefit from pitching in Washington’s top-heavy rotation. While the 5 2鈦? innings he averaged per start in 2018 were a big improvement from his 2017 numbers, he is still a ways off from the 6 1? frames (or so) that he averaged during his heyday with the Tigers. Washington’s bullpen was only a middle-of-the-road outfit last year — they may not strand as many runners as Atlanta’s ‘pen was able to for Sanchez in 2018 — but they might be at their strongest on days Sanchez starts. Thanks to the three-headed monster atop that Nationals rotation, the bullpen should be well-rested when Sanchez and [insert fifth starter here] take the mound.Is it a lot of money? Yeah, I think so, especially for a team still presumably in the hunt to retain Bryce Harper’s services for the next decade. But whether Harper returns or not, the Nationals have other holes on their roster to fill. If Sanchez has figured things out yet again, he’s a decent bet to provide some quality innings for a Washington ballclub still looking for postseason glory.
