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 64 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.”
