The St. Louis Cardinals bullpen appears to be set heading into the regular season. Barring any late changes or injuries, Ps Mitchell Boggs, Scott Linebrink, Kyle McClellan, Jason Motte, J.C. Romero, Marc Rzepczynski and Fernando Salas appears to comprise the team's seven-man bullpen.

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.
