MILWAUKEE — The St. Louis Cardinals' second baseman Kolten Wong and the Milwaukee Brewers agreed to terms of a multi-year contract, sources tell MLB's Jon Paul Morosi.
MLB Network's Ken Rosenthal meanwhile reported the contract was a two-year, $18 million deal with a club option that could increase the value of the contract to $26 million over three years.
The Brewers have not confirmed the reported deal.
The Cardinals selected Wong in the first round of the 2011 draft. He was named National League Rookie of the Month in 2014. In 2019, he won his first Gold Glove award, and won it again in the shortened 2020 season.
Also in 2020, Wong became a free agent.
If Brewers exercise Wong’s option, deal will grow to three years, $26M, source says. First with agreement: @JonMorosi.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) February 3, 2021
