Mikolas returns from Japan; agrees to $15.5 mil deal with Cardinals

The St. Louis Cardinals have acquired right-handed pitcher Miles Mikolas via the worldwide market, as multiple reports have confirmed, Tuesday.

The deal was initially reported by Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.

The Padres drafted Mikolas in 2009's seventh round and he made his Major League Baseball debut in 2012 and remained with San Diego until they traded him to the Rangers before the 2014 season, where he worked with Cardinals pitching coach and fellow fun-mustasche enthusiast, Mike Maddux. Over the next three seasons he went 4-6 with a 5.32 ERA in 37 appearance (10 starts), with the Padres and the Texas Rangers. For the Cardinals to add a potential innings eater to the rotation allows them to continue floating pitchers like Michael Wacha, Jack Flaherty, Sandy Alcantara, and potentially others, in trade talks as they seek the addition of an impact bat this offseason. He had the best year of his career in 2015 with the Yomiuri Giants. He's 31-13 with a 2.18 ERA in 62 games.

The 29 year old starter was also a very good defender in the Japan Central League. He put up a 2.18 ERA, 0.994 WHIP and 5.48 strikeout-to-walk rate in three seasons with the club.
