Shreve, 29, spent most of last season with St. Louis' Triple-A affiliate, the Memphis Redbirds, making just three big-league appearances. The Cardinals twice designated the left-hander for assignment.

Over his six-year major league career, Shreve is 16-8 with a 3.71 ERA. His best season came in 2015, his first year with the Yankees, when he had a 3.09 ERA over 59 appearances.
