ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Cardinals and 40-year-old outfielder Jim
Edmonds have agreed to a minor league contract.
St. Louis made the move Friday to bolster outfield depth behind
Matt Holliday, Colby Rasmus and Lance Berkman.
Edmonds was a key component of the 2006 World Series title team
and five others that made it to the postseason from 2000-07. He hit
241 homers with St. Louis, fourth on the franchise's career list,
and is the team's postseason leader in games and RBIs.
Edmonds was traded to the Padres after the 2007 season for third
baseman David Freese. He sat out the 2009 season and split last
season with the Brewers and Reds, batting .276 with 11 home runs.
