Via Ken Rosenthal and Derek Goold, we learn the final details of the Yadier Molina deal:

  • Five years, $75 million
  • The deal begins in 2013, and there is a mutual option for 2018 at $15 million
  • There is no deferred money
  • There is a no-trade clause

Like we’ve said before: wow, that’s rich for a catcher in his 30s. ¬†Brian McCann and Miguel Montero likely approve.
