FORT MYERS, Fla. — On a quiet day at Red Sox camp, new setup man Edward Mujica showed up and threw for a while. The righthanded strike-thrower had 37 saves as the Cardinals closer last season before fatigue set in, which cost him his job.
He walked only five batters in 64⅔ innings and had an impressive 1.005 WHIP.
He also admired the champion Sox from the Cardinals’ side of the World Series.
“It never crossed my mind to be a Red Sox,” Mujica said. “We did it and I’m excited to be here. I want to throw strikes and get outs in whatever situation.”
As for his right shoulder, he said, “I think I just got a little fatigued. I’m 100 percent healthy.” Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
