Report: Cards to begin rebuilding bullpen, sign lefty Miller

The St. Louis Cardinals are reportedly ready to begin rebuilding their beleagured bullpen.

Pending a physical, the Cardinals are poised to sign left-handed reliever Trever Miller, who pitched in the American League-champion Tampa Bay Rays bullpen last season, sources told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Miller's physical is scheduled for Thursday morning, the newspaper reported.

St. Louis was tied with Seattle for the major league lead in blown saves in 2008 with 31.

Miller, a 10-year veteran, was 2-0 with a 4.15 ERA and two saves last season for Tampa Bay. He held opposing left-handed batters to a .209 average.
