• Cardinals option struggling Boggs to Memphis

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated May 31, 2013
    Louis Cardinals optioned pitcher Mitchell Boggs to Triple-A Memphis and called up rookie Keith Butler. In a corresponding move, the Cardinals replaced Boggs with reliever Keith Butler. Manager Mike Matheny explained the multi-layered decision to use Boggs in a one-run game on Thursday again the day after. Workload concerns precluded the manager from turning to closer Edward Mujica or setup man Trevor Rosenthal, and Matheny preferred to turn the game over to someone who has closed games before.
