Aaron Miles Wins Starter's Job at 2B

Good things come in small packages for the Cardinals as diminutive Aaron Miles, 5 foot 8, 160, who this spring batted 100 points higher than his nearest competition, Junior Spivey, has won the starting second base job. Miles, 29, has flirted with a .300 batting average at every level he's played, though he has no power. He moves well and plays solid defense, but does not use his quickness to steal.
