Grichuk, Kozma to fill final Cardinals bench spots

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Infielder Pete Kozma and outfielder Randall Grichuk will fill the Cardinals' final two bench spots on St. Louis' opening-day roster.

Manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday he liked Kozma's versatility. The shortstop has also played third, second, some outfield and even practiced catching this spring training. Though he's known more for his defense than his bat, Kozma began Tuesday with a .425 batting average.

Grichuk, acquired from the Los Angeles Angels, is hitting .262 with four home runs. He's played all three outfield positions.
