      The St. Louis Cardinals signed David Freese to a 1-year deal and avoid salary arbitration

      ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals and 2011 World Series hero David Freese have reached agreement on a one-year contract that avoids salary arbitration.

      Terms of the deal announced Friday were not disclosed. The Cardinals have now come to terms with all arbitration-eligible players.

      Freese is a St. Louis County native who was 2011 World Series most valuable player. The third baseman hit .283 with 20 home runs and 79 RBIs last season and earned his first All-Star Game appearance.
