Cards void Wagner Mateos Contract

Cards Void Wagner Mateo's Contract

By Ben Nicholson-Smith [september 22 at 2:43pm CST]

The Cardinals voided the contract of top prospect Wagner Mateo, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The 16-year-old Dominican signed a $3.1MM deal with the Cards in July, but failed to meet the club's physical standards. The team discovered "pre-existing injuries and physical defects" and voided the deal.


Mateo's representatives say the outfielder has 20/30 vision in his right eye, according to Ben Badler of Baseball America. However, they say Mateo doesn't have a degenerative eye condition or nerve damage.


As I recall, it was a pretty big deal when they signed him.
