Cardinals Send Boggs Back Down to AAA Memphis

Cardinals optioned RHP Mitchell Boggs to Triple-A Memphis. Boggs was 1-0 in four starts with the Cards with a 3.22 ERA. It wasn’t a bad cameo from the youngster as he did collect 20 strikeouts in 22 1/3 innings, but his 1.75 WHIP needs to be improved. More importantly, this move likely means that Chris Carpenter will be back in the rotation shortly. Boggs will be back up in the bigs at some point this season, whether as an injury replacement or to take the reigns from a troubled starter. (Rotoworld)

Boggs Allows Nine Hits, But Only One Run

Mitchell Boggs held the Pirates to one run despite allowing nine hits and two walks over 4 1/3 innings on Thursday night. Boggs wasn’t able to earn a win since he couldn’t get through the fifth inning, as Tony La Russa pulled him after he balked with two runners on base. Boggs was lucky to allow only one run given all the baserunners he allowed. He’ll get the Cubs in his next turn. (Rotoworld)

Boggs’ Start Pushed Back to Thursday

Mitchell Boggs’ next start has been pushed back to Thursday against the Pirates. Boggs turn would have come Monday. Because of the move, Todd Wellemeyer and Joel Pineiro can remain on regular rest while Kyle Lohse and Adam Wainwright get an extra rest day. Due to an off day on May 18, a fifth starter won’t be needed again until May 23. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch speculates that Chris Carpenter could potentially return to make that start against the Royals. (Rotoworld)

Boggs Had Nothing in His Arsenal Against Pirates

Cardinals SP Mitchell Boggs did not have good stuff on Wednesday in a no decision against the Pirates. Boggs’ Cardinals won the game, 4-2, but he allowed two earned runs on five hits over just 4 1/3 innings. Boggs was wild as he walked five and struck out four. His ERA is 3.50 on the season. Boggs kept the damage to a minimum and pitched well enough for the Cardinals to earn the victory, but he threw more balls than strikes in the game. That’s never a good sign. Still, since becoming a starter, he’s 1-0 and this was really the first game he was wild. He’s pitched well in three starts and can be trusted in deeper mixed Fantasy leagues in Week 6 (May 11-17) as he pitches twice. Boggs gets a rematch with Zach Duke and the Pirates on Tuesday and goes again on Sunday at Cincinnati. (CBS Sports)

Boggs K’s Nine Nats, but Gets a No-Decision

Mitchell Boggs struck out nine while allowing four runs over six innings on Thursday night in a no-decision. The high strikeout total was likely more a reflection of the ineptitude of the Nationals lineup than of Boggs’ skill, but to his credit he’s struck out 15 batters over 13 2/3 innings in his two starts this year. Don’t expect much from him in his next turn against the Phillies, though. In 13.2 innings this year, Boggs has a sparkling 15:4 K:BB ratio and 3.29 ERA. He’s starting to become fantasy relevant, and with the way Todd Wellemeyer is pitching, Boggs could stick in the rotation even when Chris Carpenter returns. (Rotoworld, Rotowire)

Meet the New Guys: Mitchell Boggs, Chad Gaudin

With Chris Carpenter out for several months, the Cardinals are giving some of their pitching prospects a shot at the fifth starter job. First was P.J. Walters, who didn’t do well, but will stick in the bullpen. Now prospect Michell Boggs has the opportunity, and he did well last Saturday, with a win, one run (zero earned) in 5-2/3 innings. He’ll get the start against a weak Nationals team on Thursday, so we’ll give him a shot. “He always had the intangibles,” said pitching coach Dave Duncan. “He needed to develop the skills that seem to be coming together for him now.”

Originally drafted by The Pi Train in the 12th round of the minor league draft, Chad Gaudin finished third in the Cubs fifth-starter competition, and the Cubs released him in early April. The Pi Train followed suit. Gaudin then signed in the best possible situation – with the pitching-starved Padres in cavernous Petco Park. He’ll get the start today, so we’ll see how it goes before activating him. Gaudin is a high-risk option for the deepest of NL-only leagues, but the two starts make him at least mildly intriguing. Consider taking that flier now if you need a starter in Fantasy Week 4.

Roster Moves – April 28th – Week 4

FAAB Acquisitions:

  • SP Chad Gaudin, Padres ($0 bid,  reserve)
  • SP Mitchell Boggs, Cardinals ($1 bid, active)


  • 1B Casey Kotchman (to CM)
  • RP Juan Gutierrez


  • 3B  Emilio Bonifacio
  • SP Shairon Martis
  • SP Kenshin Kawakami


  • 2B/3B Blake DeWitt
  • 3B Dallas McPherson


  • Gaudin was originally drafted this season by The Pi Train, in the 12th round of the Minor League Draft.  Upon being cut by the Cubs, The Pi Train released him.  He was then signed by the pitching-starved Padres.
  • We say farewell to DeWitt, who was protected from 2008.  However with the acquisitions of Casey Blake and Orlando Hudson, and Joe Torre’s goal of having him rot on the bench, DeWitt won’t be able to help anyone until 2010, at the earliest.

Boggs to Get Second Start for Cardinals

Mitchell Boggs is scheduled to make a second start Thursday against the Nationals. Cardinals manager Tony La Russa gave him the vote of confidence Sunday after he held the Cubs to one unearned run in his 2009 debut on Saturday. He’s likely to handle the Nationals’ lineup fairly easily, so NL-only leaguers might want to give him a look. (Rotoworld)
