Cardinals sign Brian Fuentes

The Cardinals have signed former Athletics, Angels and Rockies reliever Brian Fuentes to a minor league contract, the team has announced.

Since it's a minor league deal, the club has not yet announced a corresponding 40-man roster move. But it's presumed that Fuentes wouldn't have signed with the Birds if he didn't believe he was going to be a part of the major league club. According to his agency, Fuentes drew interest from several major league clubs after Oakland let him go earlier in the week.
