ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KFVS) - Former Charleston High School pitcher James Naile announced he signed a free agent contract with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Naile posted the news Wednesday night, November 17 on Twitter.

In the tweet, Naile said playing for the Cardinals is a childhood dream come true and “SLT is the reason I love baseball.”

The St. Louis Cardinals have not released anything official.

Naile posted an 8-0 record in the minor leagues last season. He played for the AAA Las Vegas Aviators in the Oakland Athletics organization.

Oakland drafted Naile in the 20th round of the Major League Baseball draft in 2015 out of the University of Alabama-Birningham.
