Edward Mujica

  1. Edward Mujica on first blown save: “I didn’t follow Yadi and that’s a mistake”

    Jul 5, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v St. Louis Cardinals

    Edward Mujica has been brilliant since stepping into the Cardinals’ closer role, converting 21 consecutive saves with a 2.20 ERA and 25/1 K/BB ratio in 28.2 innings heading into last night. And then last night against the Angels he blew his first save of the season by serving up a game-tying two-run homer to Josh…

  2. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:16 AM EDT

    Adam Dunn

    White Sox 3, Orioles 2: A walkoff homer for Adam Dunn won it, but seven shutout innings — with 11 strikeouts — from Jose Quintana helped make it possible. Athletics 1, Cubs 0: Offense-lovers need not apply. Dan Straily allowed only one hit in seven shutout innings. Travis Wood had six shutout innings of his…

  3. Mitchell Boggs blows save, gets sent back down

    May 31, 2013, 6:04 PM EDT

    Jeff Francoeur, Mitchell Boggs

    Surely, the homer Mitchell Boggs gave up to Jeff Francoeur wasn’t the only reason he was demoted to Triple-A Memphis by the Cardinals on Friday. It was mostly that, though. Boggs, who opened the season as the Cardinals’ closer, was optioned to the minors for the second time this year after taking a blown save…

  4. Mitchell Boggs is getting back on track at Triple-A

    May 15, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Mitchell Boggs

    Mitchell Boggs flopped as St. Louis’ fill-in closer when Jason Motte went down and then continued struggling in a setup role before the Cardinals demoted him to Triple-A with a 12.66 ERA and 12 walks in 11 innings. It was a shocking turn of events for a 29-year-old who posted a 3.08 ERA during the…

  5. Cardinals closer Jason Motte needs Tommy John surgery

    May 3, 2013, 5:50 PM EDT

    Jason Motte

    Jason Motte gave his elbow injury some time to see if he could avoid going under the knife, but Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that the Cardinals closer will have Tommy John surgery. That means Motte will miss the remainder of this season and will likely be out for at least…

  6. Cardinals demote Mitchell Boggs to Triple-A, call up prospect Carlos Martinez

    May 3, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Mitchell Boggs

    Mitchell Boggs has gone from taking over for Jason Motte as the Cardinals’ fill-in closer to being demoted to Triple-A. The final straw came last night, as Boggs walked the only two batters he faced to give him more walks (12) than strikeouts (10) and 31 total baserunners allowed in 10.2 innings overall this season.…

  7. Jason Motte “felt good” after throwing from 60 feet

    Apr 29, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Jason Motte

    Jason Motte played catch twice over the weekend, throwing from 60 feet on flat ground, and afterward the rehabbing Cardinals closer told Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com that he “felt good.” Motte and the Cardinals are trying to determine if he can avoid surgery to repair a torn elbow ligament. Previously the stated plan was to…

  8. Adam Wainwright continues hot start, going 8 1/3 scoreless innings against the Nationals

    Apr 23, 2013, 10:35 PM EDT

    adam wainwright getty

    Adam Wainwright is on some sort of mission. The 31-year-old right-hander was absolutely locked in on Tuesday evening in the nation’s capital, striking out nine batters and allowing only one walk and five hits over 8 1/3 scoreless frames against a Nationals team that carries 2013 World Series aspirations. Waino now boasts a 1.93 ERA, 0.99 WHIP…

  9. Edward Mujica may be closing for the Cardinals

    Apr 15, 2013, 9:57 AM EDT

    Edward Mujica

    With Jason Motte out, and Mitchell Boggs and Trevor Rosenthal struggling, who is closing for the Cardinals? Todd Worrell? Jeff Lahti? Nope: Derrick Goold reports that Edward Mujica may get the job next: Pitching coach Derek Lilliquist said the team has “flexibility in whatever we want to do” when it comes to rearranging late-game roles. Matheny…

  10. Cardinals’ lack of action could be their undoing

    Feb 21, 2013, 11:59 PM EDT

    Mike Matheny, Chris Carpenter

    It’s hard to blame the Cardinals for staying the course. Even with free agents Kyle Lohse and Lance Berkman set to depart, St. Louis ended 2012 with a roster that already looked like a winner entering 2013: Rotation: Adam Wainwright, Chris Carpenter, Jaime Garcia, Lance Lynn, Jake Westbrook, Shelby Miller, Joe Kelly, Trevor Rosenthal Bullpen:…

  11. Giants knock Kyle Lohse out of Game 7, grab 7-0 lead

    Oct 22, 2012, 9:40 PM EDT

    Giants Getty

    If the Cardinals are going to win tonight, they will have to mount a more impressive comeback than Game 5 of the NLDS against the Nationals. Which is to say the odds are pretty long. The Giants plated five runs in the bottom of the third inning to chase Kyle Lohse from the game and…

  12. Cardinals hold off Giants, claim NLCS Game 1

    Oct 14, 2012, 11:44 PM EDT

    Carlos Beltran

    The Cardinals overcame a 6-0 deficit to win Game 5 of the NLDS against the Nationals. On Sunday, they found themselves with a 6-0 lead and then held on to beat the Giants 6-4 in the first game of the NLCS. David Freese and Carlos Beltran hit two-run homers for the Cardinals as they built…

  13. Giants making a game of it, down 6-4 after six

    Oct 14, 2012, 10:49 PM EDT

    Gregor Blanco, Angel Pagan

    After going down 6-0 to the Cardinals in the top of the fourth, the Giants came right back and knocked Lance Lynn out of the game in the bottom of the inning, closing to within 6-4. However, they’ve been unable to make up any additional ground the last two innings, leaving them with a two-run…

  14. Mike Matheny’s quick hook pays off as Cardinals even NLDS with Nationals

    Oct 8, 2012, 8:29 PM EDT

    Mike Matheny Getty

    UPDATE: Well, this adds a new wrinkle to Matheny’s decision. According to Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Jaime Garcia was pulled from the game because he aggravated a previous shoulder injury. He has been sent for an MRI. 8:13 PM: After being outmaneuvered by Davey Johnson in the Cardinals’ Game 1 loss to…

  15. I’m blaming this one on Mike Matheny

    Sep 15, 2012, 2:09 AM EDT

    Mike Matheny

    The Cardinals were up 4-3 on the Dodgers with right-handed starter Joe Kelly weakening in the bottom the fifth inning tonight. With a man on first and the left-handed-hitting Andre Ethier on deck, I think it had already been decided that he was facing his last batter when Shane Victorino flied out to left to…

  16. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Rangers celebrate

    One person’s thoughts on who made out best and worst at the trade deadline. Winners Texas Rangers: GM Jon Daniels wasn’t interested in parting with third baseman Mike Olt, much less shortstop Jurickson Profar, in order to counter the Angels’ Zack Greinke pickup, but he was able to keep his best prospects and land Ryan…

  17. HBT’s Trade Deadline Tracker

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:35 PM EDT

    Lets make a deal

    The 2012 non-waiver trade deadline has come and gone. Here’s your summary of who went where and for whom: 7/31/12: The Indians Acquire 1B Lars Anderson from the Red Sox for RHP Steven Wright. Quick Take: Anderson is a once-promising slugger who has seemingly run out of gas on his third time through Triple-A. Wright…

  18. With Marlins selling, is Josh Johnson long for Miami?

    Jul 23, 2012, 7:09 PM EDT

    Josh Johnson

    There’s no real reason for the Marlins to stop with Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante. With Ozzie Guillen’s team deciding to sell, there should be several more attractive players available: RHP Josh Johnson: Miami’s ace has stayed healthy this year, but he hasn’t pitched like a top-of-the-rotation starter with his 4.35 ERA in 19 starts.…

  19. Giancarlo Stanton hits walkoff grand slam versus Mets

    May 13, 2012, 4:37 PM EDT

    Giancario Stanton

    The Marlins have had some big ninth-inning struggles this season. Today, they turned the tables on the Mets. Giancarlo Stanton hit a walkoff grand slam as part of a six-run bottom of the ninth as the Marlins topped the Mets 8-4. The game was tied 2-2 entering the ninth when the Mets rallied for two…

  20. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 7, 2012, 5:44 AM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Orioles 9, Red Sox 6: Just your standard seventeen inning affair in which a first baseman is the winning pitcher, after throwing two shutout innings and and outfielder is the losing pitcher after giving up a three-run homer . Chris Davis shut out the Red Sox for the 16th and 17th innings, striking out two.…

  21. Marlins remove Heath Bell from ninth-inning role

    May 5, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    heath bell ap

    After watching Heath Bell blow his fourth save in seven chances Friday against the Padres, the Marlins are finally ready to make a change. Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald brings the breaking news: Heath Bell out as closer for the time being. #marlins — clarkspencer (@clarkspencer) May 5, 2012 Edward Mujica, Ryan Webb and…

  22. Ozzie Guillen after another Heath Bell blown save: “We’ve got to do something about it”

    May 5, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Heath Bell

    Heath Bell blew another save last night, coughing up his fourth lead in seven tries, and afterward manager Ozzie Guillen finally seemed ready to make a change at closer after previously saying he’d stick with Bell through the struggles: We’ll check tomorrow about what’s going to be the situation with the closer. We’ve got to…

  23. Ozzie Guillen doesn’t sound married to keeping Heath Bell as the closer

    May 3, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins v Washington Nationals

    More Marlins stuff because, well, why not. When asked about Heath Bell‘s performance last night and his prospects of remaining the Marlins’ closer, Ozzie Guillen sounded pretty non-committal: “My job is to win games. I’m going to put the best guy we think is doing the job there. This is a tough call to any position because…

  24. Padres and Cameron Maybin agree to five-year extension with club option for 2017

    Mar 3, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    San Diego Padres v Atlanta Braves

    UPDATE: Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com passes along word that the deal is official. Crasnick also notes that Maybin’s desire for a no-trade clause was denied because the Padres have a club policy against giving no-trade clauses. 12:05 PM: Corey Brock of MLB.com confirms that the deal is worth $25 million. Sounds like a potential bargain…

    Marlins Spring Baseball

    The hopes are high with LeBron James having one of the greatest statistical seasons in NBA history and the Dolphins potentially landing Peyton Manning or Matt Flynn as their new quarterback. Also, the baseball team has a new name, a new stadium and a new star shortstop. Let’s see if that does the Marlins any…
