Yadier Molina Contract Negotiations: Talks Between Catcher, Cardinals Progressing

St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina wants to get a contract extension done prior to the start of the regular season, and it sounds as though the two sides are getting closer to making that happen:

"We are making progress and hopefully we can work something out," Molina’s agent, Melvin Roman, said Monday.

Molina, 29, is eligible for free agency at the end of the season. The Cardinals likely are willing to give him a deal of four and possibly five years, sources say.
