Adam Kennedy has signed a free agent deal with the defending World Champion St. Louis Cardinals. Kennedy will be re-united with David Eckstein, who played together for the Angels. Last year Kennedy hit .273 with 5 home runs, 55 RBI's and 50 runs scored. The deal is worth 10-million dollars over three years.
The Cardinals also have come to terms with starting pitcher Kip Wells, who spent parts of last year with the Pirates and Rangers. Wells is expected to take one of the vacant spots in the Cards rotation. Terms of the deal are not yet available.
