Financial terms were not disclosed. Gallegos, 31, is in his fourth season with the Cardinals and has a 3-5 record with a 2.91 ERA and 14 saves entering the final series of the regular season. "Since joining the Cardinals organization in 2018, Gio has been a consistent and significant contributor to our bullpen, and we look forward to him continuing to be an important piece moving forward," Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said in a news release.
