    Cards get swindled....

    The Cardinals have signed left-hander R.J. Swindle to a minor league contract with an invitation to Spring Training, MLBTR's Tim Dierkes has learned.
    Swindle, 28, has nine Major League outings to his credit, last appearing in the bigs with the Brewers in 2009. The Vancouver native pitched in 39 games with the Rays' Triple-A affiliate in 2011 and has a career 2.37 ERA with an impressive 9.0 K/9 and 1.9 BB/9 in 493 2/3 minor league innings.Swindle was a 14th-round draft pick of the Red Sox in 2004.
    Actually, those minor league numbers are pretty sweet. You never know.

    Further scrutiny reveals he has pitched in 9 ML games and given up runs in 8 of them. In the ninth he gave up a hit to the only batter he faced but somehow escaped unscathed.
