Cardinals acquire Mujica for former No. 1 pick

Posted: Updated:
ST. LOUIS -

The St. Louis Cardinals acquired bullpen help at the trade deadline, getting right-hander Edward Mujica from the Miami Marlins for 2010 first-round pick Zack Cox.
 
The 28-year-old Mujica (Moo-HEE'-kah) is 0-3 with a 4.38 ERA and two saves in 41 games and has held right-handed hitters to a .211 batting average. Last year he was 9-6 with a 2.96 ERA.
 
The 23-year-old Cox was batting .254 with nine homers and 30 RBIs at Triple-A Memphis. He was the 25th overall pick in the 2010 amateur draft out of Arkansas and jumped from Class A Palm Beach to Double-A Springfield last season.
 
The Cardinals will announce a corresponding roster move after Mujica arrives in Colorado for a series against the Rockies that began Tuesday night.
