Cardinals | GM speaks on bullpen situation

St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak believes the bullpen will be a strength eventually, but they've had their struggles to open the season, mainly with RP Mitchell Boggs. Mozeliak didn't rule out Boggs returning to the main closer role and running with it, however, he mentioned RP Edward Mujica and his veteran presence in the backend of the bullpen as a guy that could also settle into the role. Mozeliak said RP Trevor Rosenthal has a dynamic arm but isn't getting the results he wants, so he'll have to make some adjustments. The GM doesn't prefer a set closer or a closer-by-committee, he just wants to see the team win any way possible. Mozeliak said the team won't label anybody as the set closer for the time being, though.

Fantasy Tip: All three relievers - Boggs, Mujica and Rosenthal - should be owned in all leagues. There's a good chance Mujica or Rosenthal get the next shot at a save situation. Boggs owners should hang on, but he probably doesn't have as much of a shot to regain the gig outright as Mujica or Rosenthal do.
