(5/7/13) Cardinals relievers Mitchell Boggs and Marc Rzepczynski have made some progress since being demoted to the minors, MLB.com reports.
Boggs made his first appearance for Triple-A Memphis Sunday and worked a scoreless inning. The right-hander posted a 12.66 ERA in 14 appearances in the majors.

"It sounds like they're getting some things going in a good direction," manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday.
|Marc Rzepczynski's demotion multi-faceted |
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(4/29/13) Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak told MLB.com on Monday that Marc Rzepczynski's demotion was not strictly based on his performance.
While the left-hander posted a 7.88 ERA through nine appearances, Mozeliak said there was a perceived a lack of desire from him this year.
"When you drill down more specifically, it's seeing some of that competitiveness and fire, and I just wasn't really seeing that drive this year," Mozeliak said. "I noticed it early in spring, and it sort of just carried over.
"You're coming in with opportunities to do things, and it just wasn't getting done. When you think about inherited runners scoring, he was just becoming ineffective. We can't just keep rolling it over and over again, thinking we were going to get a different outcome. I think they define that as insanity if we keep trying it that way."
