    Cardinals Cardinals set to sign Peralta?

    Report: Cardinals set to sign Jhonny Peralta for short | HardballTalk

    A source told ESPN.comís Jerry Crasnick that the Cardinals and shortstop Jhonny Peralta are ďclosing inĒ on a deal.

    The word Friday from MLB.comís Peter Gammons was that Peralta already had a four-year, $52 million contract offer on the table.

    It seems like a very steep price to pay for a steroid-aided 31-year-old who has finished with OPSs in the .700 range three of the last five years. Peralta did hit an improved .303/.358/.457 last season when he wasnít serving his 50-game Biogenesis suspension. His defense is fine, according to the numbers, but itís certainly not going to get any better at his age. Some teams were believed to be considering him as an outfielder, not a shortstop.

    Thatís obviously not what the Cardinals are planning; they desperately need to upgrade from Pete Kozma and Daniel Descalso at shortstop. Peralta will do that, but his signing hardly seems like a typical Cardinals move, especially if heís going to be earning in the neighborhood of $50 million.
