ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) - Right-hander Jake Westbrook decided to stay with the St. Louis Cardinals, agreeing to a two-year contract.

The 33-year-old was acquired from Cleveland on July 31 and was 4-4 with a 3.48 ERA in 12 starts for the Cardinals. Overall, he was 10-11 with a 4.22 ERA for the Cardinals and Indians.

A 2004 AL All-Star, Westbrook has a 73-75 career record with a 4.29 ERA in 10 major league seasons. He pitched three games for the New York Yankees as a rookie in 2000, then spent his entire career with Cleveland before this year’s trade.

His new contract, announced Tuesday at the general managers’ meetings, includes a mutual option for 2013.
