Report: Cardinals, 2B Mark Ellis nearing agreement

The Cardinals are nearing a one-year deal with second baseman Mark Ellis, according to multiple reports on Sunday. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch‘s Derrick Goold first reported the deal was close.

According to reports, the deal is pending a physical.

The 36-year-old Ellis spent the last two seasons with the Dodgers, and has also spent time with the Rockies and A’s. He hit .270 with six homers and 48 RBIs in 126 games last season.

The veteran is expected to serve as a complement to rookie Kolten Wong at second base.
