ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - After one too many rough outings, Mitchell Boggs is headed to the minors.  And one of the Cardinals’ most talented pitching prospects is leaping two levels to the big leagues.

The Cardinals announced today that they’ve purchased the contract of righthanded pitcher Carlos Martinez from Springfield (AA) and optioned Boggs to Memphis (AAA).

Boggs (0-2, 12.66) struggled in 14 appearances for the Cardinals, allowing 15 earned runs in 10.2 innings.

Martinez was 1-0 with a 2.31 ERA in three starts for the Springfield club, striking out nine batters in 11.2 innings pitched.
