Cards sign All-Star catcher Contreras to 5-year deal

ST. LOUIS (AP) For the first time in more than 18 years, the St. Louis Cardinals will have a new starting catcher.

Catcher Willson Contreras signed a five-year contract with a club option for 2028, the team announced Friday at a news conference.

"Willson is a proven All-Star performer who is driven to win each and every day," Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said. "The Cardinals have had a lengthy history of standout catchers, and we feel that Willson is someone who is capable of adding his name to that distinguished list in the years to come."
