St. Louis Cardinals reliever Eduardo Sanchez will start the season at AAA Memphis, while manager Mike Matheny will go with Mitchell Boggs and Scott Linebrink on the roster. The 35 year old Linebrink arrived in camp as a non-roster invitee, but pitched his way not only onto the 40-man roster, but Matheny’s opening day squad. In 9.2 innings, Linebrink has allowed just one earned run.
The bullpen is set with Linebrink grabbing the last spot. Jason Motte is the closer. Marc Rzepczynski and J.C. Romero will serve as the two lefty relievers. Fernando Salas, Kyle McClellan and Mitchell Boggs will fill out the other three spots.
