Cardinals Exercise Option On Pujols

Belleville News Democrat reports –

ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday exercised their $16 million contract option on first baseman Albert Pujols for 2011. The team also announced that left-handed reliever Trever Miller’s option for 2011 was met. Miller needed to pitch in at least 45 games to have his $2 million salary exercised for next season. Pujols, 30, led the National League in home runs (42) and RBIs (118), and he tied Matt Holliday for the team lead in batting at .312. Holliday’s average, however, was slightly higher: .31208 to .31175. Pujols hit his 400th career home run and also set the franchise mark for career multi-homer games with 39.
