ST. LOUIS -- With the recent acquisition of relievers Steve Cishek and Jonathan Broxton, the Cardinals bolstered their late-inning bullpen depth in a move designed to relieve the club's current late-inning staples, not replace them.
Through Sunday, Cardinals relievers Kevin Siegrist and Seth Maness are first and second in the Majors with 54 and 53 appearances, respectively. And for Siegrist, whose 2015 resurgence has been largely dependent on his ability to remain healthy, the arrival of reinforcements should alleviate concerns of overuse.
