Cardinals' Brad Miller: Gets majors deal with Cardinals

Miller signed a one-year, major-league contract with the Cardinals on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old's career appeared to be stalling out before his landed with the Phillies in the middle of last season and slashed .263/.331/.610 over 130 plate appearances to close the year. That display of power was quite a surprise for a player with a career .419 slugging percentage, but it evidently impressed the Cardinals enough that he was offered a big-league deal. Miller can play anywhere on the infield as well as the outfield corners, which should help him earn a bench spot, at minimum. He could even play a larger role if he hits well enough to wrest at-bats away from Tommy Edman or Kolten Wong.
