ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals have traded infielder Brendan Ryan to the Seattle Mariners for hard-throwing right-hander Maikel Cleto.
  
Ryan hit .223 and had 11 steals in just short of 500 plate appearances for St. Louis last season.
  
The Cardinals get a 21-year old pitcher who can touch 100 mph. He spent last season in the California League. He had a 6.16 ERA in 23 appearances, all but two of which were starts. Cleto also pitched in the Arizona Fall League.
