Twice a former Cardinals infielder, Aaron Miles has signed a minor league deal to try out with the Dodgers in 2011.
Miles has bounced around the big leagues with the Astros, Rockies, Cardinals, Cubs, Athletics and Reds signing his paychecks over the last few years. But he hasn't seemed to have worn out his welcome, drawing attention from Colorado and a couple of other clubs before inking with LA.
He's a .282 career hitter in eight seasons of major league play. His best season came with St. Louis in 2008 when he hit .317 with four homers in 134 games. But the Redbirds have decided it is make or break time for homegrown infielder Tyler Greene. So there was no room for Miles at the inn.
In his time with the Cardinals, Miles also logged five innings of emergency relief pitching with a 3.60 ERA and no record.
