ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have added a right-handed power hitter to their roster. Infielder Ty Wigginton agreed to a $5 million, two-year contract. He has hit 15 or more homers six times during 11 big league seasons, including 22 in 2010 with Baltimore.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Royals have added yet another newcomer to a revamped roster. Xavier Nady gives the team some outfield depth. He’s a career .270 hitter with 101 home runs and 406 RBIs. Last year Nady played on two of the best teams in baseball — the National League East champion Washington Nationals and the World Series champion San Francisco Giants.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings may have to make their playoff push without a top member of their secondary. Cornerback Antoine Winfield is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game at the St. Louis Rams because of a knee injury. Winfield has enjoyed one of his best NFL seasons.
