The St. Louis Cardinals have reportedly signed second baseman Matt Carpenter to a six-year contract extension.

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal cites sources that Carpenter and the Cards have reached a deal that could keep Carpenter in St. Louis through 2020.

The six-year pact is believed to be worth a total of $52 million. The deal includes an $18.5 million club option for 2020, or a $2 million buyout for Carpenter should said option be declined.

Carpenter, 27, led the National League in hits (199), doubles (55) and runs (126) in 2013, hitting .318 and driving in 78 runs.

In three seasons with the Cards, Carpenter has appeared in 278 games, posting a .306 average.

He was an All-Star and a Silver Slugger last season and finished fourth in National League Most Valuable Player voting.
