The Cardinals picked up minor league RHP Maikel Cleto from Seattle.
Cleto was originally signed out of the Dominican Republic by the New York Mets. By all reports he has a power arm. He made appearances both as a starter and a reliever, but projects more as a reliever. He pitched in the AZ Fall League this offseason.
Last season at high A High Desert, he struck out 7.3 per 9 and walked 3.9 per 9 innings.
Honestly, his stats do not overwhelm, but adding a power arm to the farm is always a good idea.
After the jump are a few videos of Cleto.
