Sleeper Closer in St. Louis

Spring Training Blog: Feb. 20 - ESPN:

"The Cardinals have faith that a pitcher who'll be 37 next month and isn't a strikeout machine can do the job again, but not enough that they're not trying to develop a backup this spring...Among the potential fill-ins are Jason Motte, who began last year as the closer, and Mitchell Boggs. Both throw in the high 90s, more of a typical closer template than Franklin, who is a ground-ball pitcher."

Motte is a post-hype sleeper closer, but Boggs is certainly a 1st time sleeper closer. For fantasy players, let's hope Ryan Franklin isn't the new version of Todd Jones.
