Left-handed relief specialist Arthur Rhodes has been signed by the Cardinals, the club announced Thursday. Rhodes is expected to join them Friday. He started the season with the Rangers but was released when they traded for Mike Adams and no other team picked him up off waivers. Rhodes became a free agent Wednesday after clearing waivers and being granted his release.

Rhodes, 41, was an All-Star for Cincinnati last season with a 2.29 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 69 appearances. Right handers crushed him this season, but Rhodes still held lefties to a .216/.310/.405 line. A switch back to the NL should benefit him, and you can bet new manager Tony La Russa will only be using him one left-handed hitter at a time.
