The St. Louis Cardinals are in desperate need of a quality left-handed bullpen arm. Who could they pursue out of house?

The St. Louis Cardinals were at one time interested in the great lefty now with the Cleveland Indians. Now would be a great time to rekindle this interest.

Since 2012, Andrew Miller has been one of the finest lefty relievers in the entire league. He has quite the resume as well with a Reliever of the Year award and two All-Star appearances. He even won the ALCS in 2016 with the Cleveland Indians in their should-have-been World Series run.

Miller is set to hit the market this winter and many teams will attempt to sign him. The 33-year-old is coming off a down season though. Most of his season has been plagued with injuries, only making 37 appearances, his lowest since 2013.

He also has a 4.24 ERA on the season, which is his lowest since 2011. This down year might decrease his value and could be a lower-risk high-reward deal for Mozeilak and company.
