ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Cardinals agreed to one-year contracts with closer , reliever and first baseman-outfielder , avoiding salary arbitration.

First baseman and the Cardinals agreed at $1.65 million too late before the Friday deadline, and both sides filed at the same figure.

The 25-year-old Rosenthal will make a huge leap to $5.6 million next year after setting a franchise record with 48 saves last year and leads the majors with 93 saves the last two seasons. He's the seventh player in major league history to post consecutive 45-save seasons. Rosenthal made $530,000 last year.

The 26-year-old Maness pitched in a career-high 76 games last season, among the National League leaders. He'll earn $1.4 million next season.

The 32-year-old Moss is getting a big raise to $8.25 million, up from $6.5 million last year. He combined for 19 homers and 58 RBIs with the Indians and Cardinals, who acquired him at the July 31 trade deadline.
