St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny will keep his options open for the ninth inning, but the team isn't calling the situation a closer-by-committee.
Fantasy Tip: As was mentioned before, Matheny has been backing Mitchell Boggs in the early going. That doesn't mean he'll see the next save chance, though, especially since Edward Mujica has been getting the job done in important situations. Boggs, Trevor Rosenthal and now Mujica should all be owned by saves speculators.

"He has nothing left to prove (in Memphis)," manager Mike Matheny said. "The guy can hit. It's just a matter whether he fits in right. It's not a question anymore of can he perform in (the big leagues). He can hit here or anywhere. He doesn't need to show us more."

St. Louis Cardinals SS Rafael Furcal (elbow) will not be game-ready by the weekend, and will likely be eased back into game action. "We've still got a few days to figure that out," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "He still hasn't let it go yet. It's going to be hard to put him out there in a situation where a backhand deep in the hole -- he's not ready for that. It probably will take a little time but we'll wait and see what we have these last few days." Matheny said Furcal is absolutely expected to be ready for opening day.
