Cardinals Sign Miles Mikolas

Associated Press

The St. Louis Cardinals have announced that they have signed right-hander Miles Mikolas, to a two-year contract.

Mikolas is returning to the majors after a dominant three-year run with the Yomiuri Giants in Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball where he posted a 2.18 ERA through 424 1/3 innings.

Mikolas will compete for a spot in the Cardinals rotation but is also viewed as a bullpen option.
