Cardinals Sign Miles, Royals Land Nomo

Just a month after being non-tendered, the Cardinals re signed Aaron Miles to a one year deal. Miles is very versatile having played five different positions for the Cardinals last season. Not only that, but he hit .290 with 2 HR and 32 RBI in 133 games. I think the main reason they brought him back was because of the lack of depth they had in the infield. Now they have two solid back ups with Brendan Ryan and Miles. Across the way, the Royals signed veteran arm Hideo Nomo to a minor league deal. Nomo is the second Japanese player the Royals have signed this off season, probably because new manager Trey Hillman, who managed over in Japan. Nomo is 123-109 in his career with a 4.21 ERA in 12 professional seasons. He was very good his rookie year going 13-6 with a 2.54 ERA, but his best year came in 2002 when he went 16-6 with a 3.39 ERA. I don't think he will be anything special for the Royals if he does make the squad, but he should be a good mentor for Yasuhiko Yabuta, who the Royals signed a couple months back.
