Cardinals Sign Backstop Jason LaRue to One Year Deal

by @ 4:34 am. Filed under 2008 Cardinals

Yadier Molina now has his backup.  The Cardinals signed former Reds’ and Royals’ catcher Jason LaRue to a one year deal that really shores the Cardinals up at catcher.  In LaRue, you get a starter quality catcher who can fill in whenever Molina needs a spell or if there’s an injury.  LaRue consistently hit double digit homeruns as a starter for the Reds but the past couple of years, he’s been more of a backup.  The biggest concern is that LaRue’s worst season came last year with the Royals but hopefully with some better hitters around him he’ll flourish.

The Cardinals also signed a pair of pitchers to minor league deals.  Former prospect Dewon Brazleton and John Wasdin will both gets shots with the team this spring.
