The Cardinals have agreed to terms with free agent infielder Nick Punto on a 1 year deal that I’ve seen is for $750,000.
The 33 year old Punto has spent the last 7 years of his career with the Minnesota Twins in a utility type role, making starts around the infield. He’s a switch hitter, which should greatly help his playing time in a Tony LaRussa system.
Last season he hit .238 with 1 HR in 288 plate appearances for Minnesota. His career line is .247 average and a .321 on base percentage.
