    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…

  6. Chris Carpenter could return as a reliever

    May 4, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Chris Carpenter

    The Cardinals’ starting rotation is doing quite well thus far, leading baseball with an aggregate 2.07 ERA. Their bullpen, on the other hand, brings up the rear at 5.67. They have lost Jason Motte for the season as the right-hander will undergo Tommy John surgery. Mitchell Boggs‘ stint at closer was short-lived as his 12.66…

    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.

    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.…

    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…

    Apr 9, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    Jason Motte

    When Cardinals closer Jason Motte went down late last month after a poor spring, the team termed his injury a “mild strain” in his right elbow.

    Apr 8, 2013, 7:40 PM EDT

    Mitchell Boggs

    The joke was on Shin-Soo Choo for most of Monday’s Reds-Cardinals game, as the newly converted center fielder dropped a pair of Yadier Molina flyballs to give St. Louis three of its four runs. Then came the top of the ninth inning. With Cardinals closer Mitchell Boggs in a 4-4 game, the Reds exploded —…

    Apr 4, 2013, 3:27 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Arizona Diamondbacks

    No one told Josh Collmenter and Mitchell Boggs that it’s too early in the season for games to be lasting past 3 a.m. It took nearly 5 1/2 hours, but the Diamondbacks edged the Cardinals 10-9 in 16 innings Wednesday to claim two out of three in the opening series in Arizona. Cliff Pennington singled…

    Jedd Gyorko

    The AL had an historic Rookie of the Year class last year, but this year, the NL appears to have the stronger group of the two leagues. The one issue: a lot of these talents are likely to have to wait until June or July for their opportunities, if they come this year at all.…

  21. 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:…

    The Giants likely would have been thrilled if Barry Zito made it through five innings tonight while keeping the team in the game, but he has exceeded all expectations by holding the Cardinals scoreless through seven innings. Zito has allowed just five hits and one walk (which was intentional) while striking out five. The southpaw…

    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…
