The St. Louis Cardinals just announced that they and Adam Wainwright have agreed to hitch their wagons to one another for a 15th season, agreeing on a one-year deal.

Wainwright, 38, re-signed with the Cardinals on an incentive-laden one-year, $2 million contract this time last year. In 2019 he went 14-10 with a 4.19 ERA and a 153/64 K/BB ratio across 171.2 innings. Due to reaching all possible incentives in that deal, he ended up making $10 million in all this past season.

The Cards did not immediately say how much the new deal is for, but one suspects that its similarly-structured to his 2019 pact.
