JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - Pitcher Bud Norris and the St. Louis Cardinals finalized a $3 million, one-year contract on Wednesday as the team started spring training workouts.

The 32-year-old right-hander led the Los Angeles Angels with 19 saves in 23 chances last season. He went 2-6 with a 4.23 ERA in three starts and 57 relief appearances, striking out 74 in 62 innings.

He is 68-84 with a 4.49 ERA over nine major league seasons, making 188 starts and 103 relief appearances with Houston (2009-13), Baltimore (2013-15), San Diego (2015), Atlanta (2016), the Los Angeles Dodgers (2016) and the Angels.

He can earn additional performance bonuses: $250,00 each for five, 10, 15 and 20 starts, and $200,000 apiece for 40, 50 and 60 relief appearances.

To clear a roster spot, right-hander Rowan Wick was designated for assignment.
