La Russa Says Cardinals to Sign RHP Suppan
PHOENIX (AP) -- St. Louis manager Tony La Russa says the Cardinals expect to sign Jeff Suppan and add the right-hander to the rotation early next week.

La Russa says Suppan threw a bullpen session before the Cardinals' game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday and impressed pitching coach Dave Duncan. La Russa says he expects Suppan to start in the three-game series against Seattle that begins Monday in St. Louis.

The 16-year major league veteran had three successful seasons with St. Louis from 2004 through 2006, going 44-26 with a 3.95 ERA. He was released by the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday.

Two Cardinals starters, Kyle Lohse and Brad Penny, are on the disabled list.
