ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- The St. Louis Cardinals acquired bullpen help at the trade deadline, getting right-hander Edward Mujica from the Miami Marlins for 2010 first-round pick Zack Cox.
The move was announced Tuesday just hours before the non-waiver trade deadline.
Mujica, 28, has a 4.38 ERA this season in 39 innings pitched for the Marlins. He’s limiting opposing right-handed batters to a .211 BA.
Mujica is expected to join the Cardinals in Colorado this week for their series against the Rockies. The team will announce a corresponding move to the 25-man roster when that happens.
The 23-year-old Cox was batting .254 with nine homers and 30 RBIs at Triple-A Memphis. He was the 25th overall pick in the 2010 amateur draft out of Arkansas and jumped from Class A Palm Beach to Double-A Springfield last season.
