Cardinals Sign Izturis

The Cardinals have signed former Dodger/Cub/Pirate shortstop Cesar Izturis to a one-year deal.  Financial information, so far, has not been announced.

Here are the numbers.   Offensively, he’s been nothing special, though he can hit around .250 or so.  He plays Gold Glove defense, which will be nice and hopefully will help the pitching staff out a lot.

Whether he’ll be the starter for the ’08 Birds or a backup probably depends on how next week at the GM meetings goes.
