WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The Cardinals will announce an extension for right-hander Miles Mikolas at an early evening press conference in Jupiter, Fla., on Tuesday. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch was first to report the agreement.
According to MLB.com's Jon Paul Morosi, the extension will pay Mikolas $68 million over the 2020-23 seasons. The Cardinals have not confirmed the extension.
Mikolas expressed interest in negotiating an extension ahead of becoming a free agent at the end of the 2019 season.

Those negotiations began this offseason and continued into his second Spring Training with the organization.

On Saturday, Mikolas was officially named the team’s Opening Day starter.
