St. Louis Cardinals Sign Switch-Hitting Shortstop

The St. Louis Cardinals make another move.

The Cardinals have signed shortstop Arquimedes Gamboa to a minor-league contract. 

Gamboa will give the Cardinals some added upper-level minors infield depth.

Last season, playing with Triple-A Sacramento of the San Francisco Giants, Gamboa slashed .239/.337/.349, with four home runs, 29 RBIs, seven stolen bases and 28 runs scored over 296 plate appearances.

The twenty-five-year-old was once an intriguing prospect with the Philadelphia Phillies but, for now, he's just organizational depth.

Gamboa, who has yet to make his major-league debut, holds a .219/.311/.316 triple-slash line, with 27 home runs, 189 RBIs, 65 stolen bases and 243 runs scored over 577 games played in the minors.
