Cardinals sign Matt Belisle to one-year, $3.5 million deal


From the official Twitter account of the St. Louis Cardinals …

FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal says the one-year deal is worth $3.5 million and carries $500,000 worth of performance-based bonuses. Belisle posted an ugly 4.87 ERA and 1.44 WHIP across 64 2/3 innings this past season out of the Rockies’ bullpen, but it’s reasonable to believe that the 34-year-old right-hander will fare much better in moving from the least-pitcher-friendly environment in baseball to one of the friendliest.
