Cardinals | Bullpen roles not set

St. Louis Cardinals RP Mitchell Boggs is using a modified split-fingered pitch that goes along with his hard sinking fastball. Manager Mike Matheny is approaching Boggs with a "blank slate" approach with RP Jason Motte entrenched as the closer. RP Fernando Salas is most likely to serve as the eighth-inning setup man over RP Eduardo Sanchez. RP Kyle McClellan is another setup option, but he could be used as trade bait in spring training. RPs Scott Linebrink and Marc Rzepczynski are other candidates for setup work, but Matheny isn't making any assumptions.
