St. Louis Cardinals’ prospects Jarrett Hoffpauir and Mitchell Boggs are in top form in the Arizona Fall League.

With limited at bats so far during the Arizona Fall League, Jarrett Hoffpauir has made the most of his opportunities and is putting himself in the mix for a role on the 2007 Cardinals. In Thursday’s action, the second baseman was 2-for-5 with two runs batted in and a stolen base. The 24-year-old is now hitting .333/.429/.333 with four runs batted in six games and 18 official at-bats.

Hoffpauir was not the only Cardinal farmhand to see action on Tuesday. Kyle McClellan struggled through an inning and two-thirds while allowing two runs on six hits. McClellan's ERA is now 6.75 in 5 1/3 innings.

Monday’s AFL action saw the return of Mitchell Boggs to the bump. Having not allowed an earned run in his first two starts, Boggs proved he is human, giving up two runs on two hits and two walks in three innings of work. In three starts, Boggs, who had pitched six scoreless frames going into this game, has an ERA of 2.00 in nine innings of work.

Jason Motte got in a perfect inning on the mound, lowering his ERA to 3.60. Mark Hamilton had a good game with a hit and two walks. The first baseman is hitting .188 in the Arizona sun.

Amaury Cazana Marti has yet to make an appearance after being named as Joe Mather’s replacement for Mesa.
