Mitchell Boggs, the righthanded starter vying for a spot on the Cardinals’ depth chart as their No. 6 starter, has experienced tightness in his right shoulder during early bullpen sessions. Boggs will be evaluated by team doctors today as part of the pre-spring physicals, but management acknowledged that Boggs has felt some discomfort that has merited mention on the initial medical reports presented to the front office Friday.
Updated 3:19PM. Update on Boggs from Leach, things may not be as bad as initially feared:
Mitchell Boggs got some good news about his tight right shoulder. The tentative plan is to rest him for a few days, let the anti-inflammatory medication take effect and re-evaluate him early next week, but we were told that the concern level is lower than it was yesterday.
