The Cardinals and outfielder Stephen Piscotty have “made progress” in extension talks, reports Jon Morosi of MLB Network (Twitter link). While Morosi doesn’t note that a deal is done, it’s certainly worth noting that the Cardinals have called a press conference for 1pm CT today but did not disclose the reasoning for the conference.

The contract, if completed, would be the third notable extension since the end of the 2016 campaign for Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak and his staff. St. Louis has also extended burgeoning ace Carlos Martinez this winter, and franchise icon Yadier Molina wrapped up a three-year contract extension of his own over the weekend.

The 26-year-old Piscotty was the 36th overall selection in the 2012 draft and has blossomed from one of the Redbirds’ top prospects to their everyday right fielder over the past two seasons. In that time, Stanford product has established himself as a well-above-average bat, hitting a combined .282/.348/.467 with 29 home runs through his first 216 MLB games (905 plate appearances).
