Update: ESPN says Mateo signs with St. Louis

In an update of a previous post, ESPN has reported that 16-year-old Dominican outfielder Wagner Mateo has agreed to a $3.1 million signing bonus to join the Cardinals organization.

Supposedly the Giants decided against a proposal to outbid St. Louis with a $3.5 million offer at the last minute. Meanwhile, Cardinals GM John Mozeliak personally went to Mateo's house to close the deal.
