the St. Louis Cardinals are finalizing a one-year contract with future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols.
Katie Woo went on to say Pujols is expected to arrive in Jupiter, Florida within the upcoming week to join the team.
Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports & Mark Feinsand of ESPN both reporting that the deal is $2.5M per their sources.
Pujols will likely platoon the DH position with recently acquired Corey Dickerson and/or Juan Yepez if the latter breaks camp with the club.
This move may seem like a nostalgia move to some, but the spark that has ignited a lot of Cardinals Nation upon hearing of this breaking news is sure to do the same in the clubhouse with teammates who have the utmost respect for Albert.
It looks as if the ultimate farewell tour for Adam Wainwright, Yadier Molina & Albert Pujols is all but a done deal. So get your popcorn ready, Cardinals fans… 2022 is going to put butts in seats!
