JUPITER, Fla. — Shortstop Paul DeJong and the St. Louis Cardinals agreed to a six-year, $26 million contract, a deal that includes team options for 2024 and 2025.

The 24-year-old made his major league debut last May 28 and hit .285 with a team-high 25 homers and 65 RBIs in 108 games. He was selected by St. Louis from Illinois State in the fourth round of the 2015 amateur draft.

DeJong is 3 for 14 with a double and two RBIs in spring training this year.

His deal, announced Monday, covers up to four years of arbitration eligibility and one to three years of free agent eligibility.
