Major League Baseball’s non-waiver Trade Deadline came and went on Tuesday, with the Cardinals making one deal. Reliever Edward Mujica was acquired from the Marlins for former first-round Draft pick, Zack Cox. More on that deal here.

GM John Mozeliak spoke to MLB.com about Mujica and the Trade Deadline, and you can look for those comments from him on cardinals.com tonight. Mujica is expected to arrive in Colorado tonight, which means the Cardinals will make a roster move after the game to open up a spot for him in the ‘pen.

In clubhouse news, Rafael Furcal remains out of the lineup for a third straight day. He described his back as “a little better now but still stiff” shortly before taking the field to test his back by fielding some grounders and taking some swings. His availability for Tuesday night would be determined after that work.
