The Cardinals announced a three-year contract extension Thursday morning for general manager John Mozeliak. The club also will pick up the option for 2014 on manager Mike Matheny’s contract.
Mozeliak’s contract was extended through 2016. Entering his sixth season as general manager, Mozeliak has led the team through three post-season appearances, including the 2011 World Series Championship title.
If he completes the term of the new contract, Mozeliak will have been general manager for nine years and he’ll have been with the organization for 20.
