Jason Motte plays catch Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(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.

Jason Motte hasn't started throwing yet
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(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
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(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.

Trevor Rosenthal could have company in Jason Motte
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/19/14) In case you haven't heard, Jason Motte is set to return from Tommy John surgery Tuesday, and in case you haven't heard, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said he wouldn't be afraid to use him in high-leverage situations.

That's bad news for Trevor Rosenthal, who, in case you haven't heard, blew his second save Sunday and is lucky not to have blown more, given that he's issued 14 walks in 21 2/3 innings.

In case you haven't heard, Motte was the Cardinals' closer before blowing out his elbow and, in case you haven't heard, was excellent in the role, recording 42 saves with a 2.75 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 10.8 strikeouts in 2012.

Maybe Motte won't reclaim the role right away, but if his return goes without a hitch and Rosenthal continues to do what he's done all season, the Cardinals would have an easy transition back to him.

Time to pick him up, then, you heard?
