Adam Wainwright will be a St. Louis Cardinal for at least one more year. The Cardinals announced Thursday that Wainwright and the team have agreed to a contract for the 2019 season.

It will be the 15th season for the two-time Golden Glove pitcher, who is 37 years old.

While he missed nearly 150 days on the disabled list this past season, he made a strong return in September, striking out 25 batters in 22 innings, helping the Cardinals get very close to the postseason.

The Cardinals made a strong play for a wild card spot after a rough season that saw Manager Mike Matheny get fired, and Interim Manager Mike Shildt get the job.

Cardinals fans are hoping the team will start the 2019 season with the same success the team saw in September, and will likely be glad to see Wainwright on the roster for another season.

Details about how much the contract is worth have not been released.
