|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/29/14) Cardinals pitcher Jason Motte was able to get through another bullpen session Friday, according to FoxSports.
It's the third time Motte has thrown off a mound since his injury. Motte said he was able to throw at full intensity. He's not sure what's next in the recovery process.

(8/19/14) Cardinals pitcher Jason Motte played catch Tuesday for the first time since hitting the disabled list on Aug. 8, MLB.com reports.
Motte threw around 15 pitches from a distance of 90 feet. He'll continue to throw from flat ground for several days before eventually advancing to mound work. Motte is working his way back from a lower back strain.

(8/14/14) Cardinals reliever Jason Motte has not started throwing yet, according to MLB.com.
Motte has been sidelined since August 1 due to a back injury. Once he resumes throwing, he'll need a rehab assignment. It's starting to look like he won't be back until September.
|Jason Motte hits DL with back injury |

(8/8/14) The Cardinals placed reliever Jason Motte on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a lower back strain, the team announced.
Motte has not pitched in a week, so the move is retroactive to Aug. 2. He has a 4.91 ERA in 22 innings since returning from Tommy John surgery in May.
|Cardinals take Jason Motte off DL |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/20/14) The Cardinals announced Tuesday they activated reliever Jason Motte (elbow) off the 15-day disabled list. Motte has been sidelined all season as he continued his recovery from Tommy John surgery in May 2013.
Motte made six appearances on a rehab assignment with Double-A Springfield and Triple-A Memphis. He tossed 6 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing three hits and one walk. He struck out five.
|At this time last year, Jason Motte had just recorded an NL-leading 42 saves in his first season as a full-time closer and was looking like one of the top three or four relievers to target on Draft Day. That is, until word of his elbow soreness broke about midway through spring training. He spent a week of the season in limbo on the DL before ultimately resigning to Tommy John surgery, ending his 2013 before it even started. The good news is relievers usually don't need as long to recover from the procedure, and Motte is aiming to pitch in games this spring. The bad news is the closer role isn't exactly his for the taking. Hard-throwing 23-year-old Trevor Rosenthal seized the job in the postseason and has the stuff to lock it up for good. At age 31, Motte will probably get a chance to close again somewhere down the line, provided his return goes smoothly, but with the Cardinals this year, he's just a Hail Mary pick in NL-only leagues.
