Facing the Mujica

(UPDATE: Reports out of St. Louis indicate that Edward Mujica is indeed dealing with some aches and pains, but according to general manager John Mozeliak, "from a health standpoint he's 100%." Expect him to get the call the next time the Cardinals are in need of a save.)
It's never a good thing for a closer to be given a few days off in order to deal with "arm fatigue," but it is even worse when the trainer has to come out to the mound and check on that closer in his first appearance after the rest.
