According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals have picked-up right-hander Jeff Suppan, who was released by the Brewers on Monday. Suppan will earn a prorated portion of the Major League minimum, with the Brewers on the hook for the rest of his what’s left on his $12.5 million salary for 2010.
Suppan, according to the report, will join the team on Phoenix this weekend. The Brewers and Cardinals meet again for a four-game series from July 1-4 in St. Louis.
Update at 2:50 p.m. CT — Suppan’s agent, Scott Leventhal, confirms the deal, though Cards GM John Mozeliak cautions that nothing is official. Still, it looks like Suppan will be a Cardinal again.
