ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Cardinals backup catcher Jason LaRue has been activated from the 15-day disabled list after recovering from a right hamstring injury.

The Cardinals also announced Tuesday they had signed infielder Aaron Miles to a minor league contract. Miles was a member of the Cardinals team that won the 2006 World Series.

Rookie catcher Bryan Anderson was optioned to Triple-A Memphis to make room for LaRue, who was injured running the bases. Anderson's pinch-hit double was the tying hit Monday night in a 4-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves.

The 33-year-old Miles was one of the Cincinnati Reds' final cuts this spring. The switch-hitter batted .289 in three seasons for the Cardinals, including a career-best .317 average in 2008.
