The Cardinals sign Ty Wigginton

Free agent infielder Ty Wigginton and the St. Louis Cardinals have agreed to a $5 million, two-year contract.

General manager John Mozeliak announced the agreement Friday and said Wigginton gives the Cardinals a right-handed bat "with punch."

The 35-year-old Wigginton, who will make $2.5 million annually, has hit 15 or more homers six times during 11 big league seasons.

He had 22 in 2010, when he was an All-Star with Baltimore.
