Yadier Molina Signs Three Year Contract Extension with Cardinals

After three days of “finalizing” a deal on a contract extension, 101ESPN’s MLB insider and MLB.com reporter Jen Langosch confirms the Cardinals have signed catcher Yadier Molina to a three-year contract extension.

Fox’s Ken Rosenthal reports the deal is worth between $55-$65 million, making Molina baseball’s highest paid catcher.

The Cardinals are holding a press conference at 1pm Sunday to announce the extension.
The deal could put Yadi in very respectable company, as 101ESPN’s Randy Karraker noted:
