(KMOX) — According to a report earlier this morning from Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Cardinals have reached agreement on a two-year contract with infielder Ty Wigginton worth an estimated $5 million.  The deal is pending the outcome of a physical.

Wigginton, 35, is a veteran righthanded hitter with the ability to play multiple positions in the field.  Last season for the Phillies, he appeared at first base, third base and in the outfield.  He also has experience playing second base.

Wigginton can hit with power, having cracked 11 home runs last year with the Phillies to go along with a .235 batting average.   He has eclipsed 20 home runs in a season four times in his career, with the Rays (24 HR in 2006; 22 in 2007), Astros (23 in 2008) and Orioles (22 in 2010).  The Cardinals will be Wigginton’s eighth MLB team (Mets, Pirates, Rays, Astros, Orioles, Rockies and Phillies).
