St. Louis Cardinals' pitcher Jason Motte, who was placed on the disabled list since March 29 with a strained right elbow and later diagnosed as a ligament tear, began a throwing program on Monday. As reported by Jenifer Langosch and Chad Thornburg of MLB.com, Jason Motte is four months into his rehab from Tommy John surgery.  He threw lightly into a net 20 times on Monday and expects to do the same today.  The immediate plan is to do the same on an every other day basis. The typical recovery time from Tommy John surgery is between 12 and 15 months, but Motte isn't speculating as to whether or not he is on track. "I just take it one day at a time," Motte said. "It was 20 throws into a net, it wasn't really that strenuous. You could get a 3-year-old to do that, so it wasn't really that tough. But it felt fine." Motte has pitched his entire six year Major League career with the Cardinals. He was the team's closer last season and converted 42 of 49 save opportunities. He was 4-5 with a 2.75 earned run average and allowed only 49 hits and struck out 86 in 72 innings.  For his career, Motte is 17-13, 54 saves and a 2.87 earned run average.
