(KSDK Sports) -- The Cardinals may have their closer signed up for the next few season, but the same cannot be said about their third baseman. 

The Cards have yet to reach a deal with slugger David Freese.

General Manager John Mozeliak admits the "gap" between the two sides is big, but he has never gone to arbitration with a player.

Freese has 35 homers and 177 R-B-Is in 328 games with the Cardinals.  The numbers will determine his value.
