Source: Jhonny Peralta close to agreeing to a deal with the Cardinals

Jhonny Peralta has agreed to a 4/$52M with the St. Louis Cardinals. Peralta has been commanding a 4/$50M on the open market and got it. Peralta is coming of a 50 game suspension because of his part in the Biogeisis scandal. Peralta takes away almost all of the possibility of a trade including Jed Lowrie between the A's and the Cardinals. The Cardinals infield will now be 1st Allen Craig/Matt Adams, 2nd Base Kolten Wong, SS Jhonny Peralta, 3rd base Matt Carpenter. This is a much improved hitting and potentially fielding defense than last year's WS team. The Cardinals still have the best hand in this offseason with the best arsenal of young pitching in the MLB. If they will make a move and trade any of those young arms, remains to be seen but if they want to they could.
