Cardinals | Edward Mujica fatigued

St. Louis Cardinals RP Edward Mujica (shoulder) is dealing with some fatigue, which is likely the result of soreness and stiffness in his right shoulder. He met with the medical staff and a chiropractor Thursday, Aug. 22, to have work done on his shoulder, lat and "a knot" near his neck. Mujica could be unavailable for at least another day. He notched a save Wednesday, Aug. 21, and said the pain doesn't come until after his appearance. Three of his last five outings have been two innings long, and his save Wednesday was 1 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Monitor Mujica's progress over the next few days to see how he bounces back. In the meantime, Trevor Rosenthal will likely close out games in the ninth. If you're speculating for saves, grab Rosenthal now.
