The Cardinals have voided outfielder Wagner Mateo’s contract, citing "pre-existing injuries and physical defects" in a statement.
Mateo signed with the Cardinals when the international signing period began on July 2 for $3.1 million, which was the top international bonus this summer for a 16-year-old amateur player and a record for a Dominican position player.
The Cardinals’ statement said the contract had been contingent upon his physical exam.
