Adam Wainwright: Five-Year Extension With Cards

Rotowire.com
Update: Wainwright agreed to a five-year, $97.5 million extension with the Cardinals, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

Recommendation: The deal will kick in at the beginning of the 2014 season, keeping Wainwright on the books through 2018. Although a slow start sullied his overall numbers last season, he put together an excellent second half and should top the rotation for the next few seasons until prospects like Shelby Miller, Carlos Martinez and Michael Wacha are ready to take over the reigns of the staff.
