Cards sign INF Anna

St. Louis, MO ( – The St. Louis Cardinals signed free agent
infielder Dean Anna to a major league contract and three other players to
minor league deals on Tuesday.

Anna participated in 12 games for the New York Yankees last season, batting
.136 (3-for-22) with one home run and three RBI. He was claimed off waivers by
the Pirates on July 5, but did not make an appearance in the major leagues for
the remainder of the year.

The Cards also agreed to terms with pitchers Marcus Hatley and Miguel
Socolovich and infielder Scott Moore to minor league contracts.

Socolovich did not record a decision while posting a 6.06 ERA in 12
appearances with the Orioles and Cubs in 2012.

Moore is a lifetime .242 hitter who has collected 16 home runs and 53 RBI over
152 games with the Cubs, Astros and Orioles from 2006-12.
