The Winter Meetings remain quiet in regards to the bigger name free agents, although a few left-handed relievers have reportedly found new homes.
The St. Louis Cardinals have signed Randy Choate to a three year contract. The 37-year-old pitched for the Miami Marlins and Los Angeles Dodgers last season, posting a 3.03 ERA / 3.25 FIP and 3.64 xFIP in 80 appearances. The lefty specialist had a 62.1% ground ball rate in 38 2/3 innings. The club still has left hander Marc Rzepczysnki on their projected roster for 2013.
