Marlins trade Edward Mujica to Cardinals for Zack CoxBy
The Marlins aren’t done unloading this 2012 team. According to Peter Gammons of the MLB Network, they’ve sent reliever Edward Mujica to St. Louis in exchange for 2010 first-rounder Zack Cox.
Mujica has struggled this season, posting a FIP just north of 4.5 while striking out only six batters per nine innings. He’s come up successful on occasion for the Marlins this year, however, so the bullpen does get worse. That said, it’s a rebuilding year for Miami so they should be just fine. Zack Cox, a 2010 first rounder hasn’t lived up to expectations as of yet, but he’s still fairly young and has every chance to succeed. I imagine he’ll see time at 3B once September rolls around and could compete for a starting job next season.
