Cardinals | Edward Mujica locks down save

St. Louis Cardinals RP Edward Mujica got himself into a first-and-third jam with nobody out against the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday, April 18, before retiring three hitters in a row for his first save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Matheny chose to go with Mujica in the ninth over Mitchell Boggs, who has blown two of his four save chances to start the year. Mujica was shaky, however, but he got the job done, meaning Matheny will likely go to him again if another save situation arises. This isn't Mujica's job completely yet, though; if he falters, Matheny could go back to Boggs or try out Trevor Rosenthal, who has been struggling himself. Mujica is the best option to own at the moment, however, and he could run away with the job if he continues to get the job done.
