Cardinals Sign Brad Penny To One Year Deal

An article by posted on December 7, 2009

According to Jon Heyman and Buster Olney via Twitter,

The Cardinals and Brad Penny have a letter of agreement, for a $7.5 million base and $1.5 in performances bonuses. Physical likely on Wed.

Penny, who finished strong last season with the Gianst, could be a nice addition for the Cardinals.

The big righthander made 30 starts between the Red Sox and Giants and posted a 4.88 ERA. But after being traded to San Francisco he went 4-1 with a 2.54 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP in six games started. 

Like most pitchers, he’ll benefit greatly by being paired with the great Dave Duncan as his new pitching coach.
