Cards Agree to Terms with Two Pitchers

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis

Cardinals have agreed to terms with pitchers Mitchell Boggs and Edward Mujica

on one-year contracts, avoiding salary arbitration.

Boggs gets $1,475,000 after earning

$506,000 last season. Mujica got a $3.2 million deal after making $1,625,000 a

year ago.

Boggs appeared in a career-high 78 games

last season and his 2.21 ERA ranked sixth among NL relievers. Mujica had a 1.03

ERA in 29 games after arriving in a trade-deadline deal from Miami, shoring up

the St. Louis bullpen and not allowing a run in his first 18 games with the

Cardinals.

The club also exchanged arbitration

figures Friday with third baseman David Freese and pitchers Jason Motte and

Marc Rzepczynski.

Freese,

the MVP of the 2011 World Series and NLCS, asked for $3.75 million and was

offered $2.4 million. Motte submitted $5.5 million and was offered $4.5

million. Rzepczynski requested $1.3 million while the Cardinals proposed

$900,000.
