Cardinals present pitcher Gant with contract, lock-in young players on roster

One of the things the Cardinals have said over and over again this offseason is how the answers to many of their questions for 2020 can be found somewhere on their roster and how that could lead to few surprises this winter.

The Cardinals presented pitcher John Gant, their only arbitration-eligible player, a contract for 2020. The Cardinals could have non-tendered Gant and he would have become a free agent immediately. The Cardinals preemptively made that decision in November with reliever Dominic Leone, removing him from the roster and passing him through waivers before having to make the decision to tender or non-tender a contract to him.
