Cubs RP Jason Motte picks up relief win on Saturday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/24/15) Cubs reliver Jason Motte (2-1) earned a win in relief in Saturday's 9-6 victory over the Diamondbacks. Motte entered the bottom of the eighth inning with one away and managed to retire the two batters he faced. The Cubs put up three runs in their half of the ninth, which allowed Motte to pick up the win. 

The hard-throwing right-hander lowered his season ERA to 4.76 and he has not been scored upon in his last four outings.

Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson earning Joe Maddon's trust

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/22/15) Cubs relief pitcher Edwin Jackson is slowly making the transition into a full-time reliever. With the adjustment to his game, manager Joe Maddon is noticing how well he's doing out of the bullpen, reports MLB.com.

"Jacks is starting to take to it," Maddon said. 

Jackson has  a perfect 0.00 ERA in five innings of work this season with three strikeouts and no walks. Maddon noted he hasn't used Jackson anymore than he normally would have and it has nothing to do with the struggles of Brian Schlitter and Jason Motte.

"I'm not saying you're not going to see Schlitter or Motte," Maddon said. "You always kind of like when it first starts out, you play it like it was first drawn up and don't try to make too many adjustments too soon until you need to try something differently. More than anything, I think Jackson has earned the right or opportunity to pitch in more opportune moments or more difficult moments for him."

Cubs' Maddon on Jason Motte: 'I'm not worried about him'

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/15) Cubs manager Joe Maddon indicated Sunday that he's not concerned with the struggles of pitcher Jason Motte, who has posted a 14.21 ERA in 6 1/3 spring innings, the Chicago Tribune reports.

"Something that I’m not often into is mechanical adjustments," Maddon said of Motte. "It's something that [pitching coach Chris Bosio] picked up on in a conversation. I'm not worried about him. I think the velocity is very good. Just the shape of his pitches were different."

Maddon: Hector Rondon will remain Cubs' closer

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/21/15) Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters Saturday that Hector Rondon will remain the closer heading into the start of the season, according to MLB.com. Rondon emerged as Chicago's ninth-inning man in 2014, converting 29 of 33 chances.

Madded also noted that he's a believer of using the right reliever in high leverage situations, and called Jason Motte a "force multiplier," able to "fit in a variety of spots" in the bullpen. 

Motte missed the 2013 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He saved 42 games in 2012 for the Cardinals.

Report: Cubs agree to sign Jason Motte

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/15/14) The Cubs have agreed to sign reliever Jason Motte, according to ESPN.

Motte had an injury-riddled season with the Cardinals in 2014 while coming off Tommy John surgery. He posted a 4.68 ERA over 25 innings, but missed time due to a back injury. The deal is pending a physical. Motte's deal is worth $4.5 million, according to Yahoo! He can make more based on incentives. There's a games finished clause in the deal, so Motte could be a ninth inning option for the club.
