Cardinals | Bullpen implodes again

The St. Louis Cardinals bullpen blew another late lead against the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday, April 14, with RP Trevor Rosenthal allowing a two-run home run in the eighth and RP Mitchell Boggs blowing the save chance in the ninth inning. RP Edward Mujica came to the rescue in the ninth inning with the game tied, and he could be an alternative to saves if manager Mike Matheny wants to go away from Boggs. Pitching coach Derek Lilliquist said the club has "flexibility in whatever we want to do." Matheny hasn't been ready to make snap decisions on Boggs yet, who is 2-for-4 in save chances, but he acknowledged that Mujica has been getting the job done in key situations. "(Boggs) is going to keep grinding through it, grinding through it. And we'll see what he's made of," Lilliquist said.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Matheny and the Cardinals are sticking with Boggs, at least for a little while longer. However, Mujica, not Rosenthal, might now be next in line for saves if Boggs continues to struggle. If you're seeking saves, Mujica is worth a look, at least in NL-only leagues for the time being.
