ST. LOUIS (BaseballStL) -- Cardinals right-hander Brandon Dickson will play in Japan next season, according to B.J. Rains of FoxSportsMidwest.com.

The team will soon move Dickson from the 40-man roster so he will be able to sign with the Orix Buffaloes.

The 28-year-old has spent the past three seasons at Triple-A Memphis.  Dickson posted a 5-11 record with a 3.63 ERA in 23 starts at Triple-A last season.  He appeared in four games with the Cardinals last season and allowed seven runs (five earned) and ten hits in 6.1 innings pitched.

In his Major League career, Dickson posted a 4.91 ERA in eight games including one start.
