Courtesy: Cardinals Media Relations ST. LOUIS, Mo The St. Louis Cardinals announced today that they have agreed to terms with pitchers Mitchell Boggs and Edward Mujica on one-year contracts for the upcoming 2013 season, thus avoiding salary arbitration. The team exchanged salary arbitration figures with third baseman David Freese and pitchers Jason Motte and Marc Rzepczynski. Boggs, 28, who yesterday was named to the provisional roster for Team USA in the upcoming World Baseball Classic, appeared in a career-high 78 games last season (T4th in the National League) and set a Cardinals record with 34 Holds. Boggs 2.21 ERA ranked 6th amongst N.L. relievers and he allowed just 17.1 percent of inherited runners to score (7th in N.L.). Mujica, 28, acquired in a trade deadline deal from Miami, helped solidify the Cardinals bullpen upon his arrival, posting a 1.03 ERA in 29 games with the Cardinals along with 19 Holds. Mujica did not allow a run in his first 18 games with St. Louis, pitching the 7th inning in 23 of his 29 appearances as a Redbird. He finished the year with 70 combined appearances (a career high) between Miami and St. Louis and 31 Holds (4th in N.L.). Mujica fanned 21 batters and issued just two unintentional walks in his 26.1 innings pitched for St. Louis.
