Kottaras has been designated for assignment by the Cleveland Indians earlier in the week. He'll meet the Cardinals in Milwaukee and will be activated in time for Saturday's afternoon game.
This isn't the kind of move that will get anyone chirping, but Kottaras is a good fit for the Cardinals' situation. It's a common-sense signing.
