SAN DIEGO (KMOX) - Former St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Jeff Suppan is getting another crack at the major leagues.

The San Diego Padres confirmed Wednesday that the 37-year-old righthander agreed to a minor league contract, with an invite to the club’s major league Spring Training camp.

Suppan has a 138-143 record over 16 years in the majors. His best seasons came in 2004-05 with the Cardinals, when he won 16 games each season. Then in 2006 — a year the Cardinals won the World Series — he was named the Most Valuable Player of the National League Championship Series, in which he posted a 0.60 ERA over two starts against the Mets.

Suppan spent all of last season with the Kansas City Royals AAA team in Omaha.
