The St. Louis Cardinals have signed former Clemson outfielder Chase Pinder to a $300,000 contract on Thursday according to senior MLB.com writer Jim Callis.

Pinder was drafted in the 7th round and the slotted value for pick 214 overall was $190,700.

The junior outfielder batted .305 with 16 doubles, seven homers, 32 RBIs, 59 runs, a .419 on-base percentage and 13 steals in 61 games in 2017 as a Third-Team All-ACC outfielder. The two-time ACC Academic Honor Roll member is hitting .289 with 32 doubles, 21 homers, 104 RBIs, 144 runs, 22 steals and a .402 on-base percentage in 171 career games. Pinder, whose brother, Chad, plays in the majors with the Athletics, was the first Tiger position player drafted by the Cardinals since Greg Guin in 1981.
