PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Former Brown University standout pitcher Kevin Carlow (Mystic, Conn.) has signed as a non-drafted free agent with the St. Louis Cardinals organization and will report to extended spring training on April 4, 2014.
Carlow, a right-handed pitcher who graduated from Brown in 2013, will join the Cardinals for extended spring training in Jupiter, Florida with a chance to earn a shot at the organization's Short Season-A affiliate in State College, Pennsylvania.
