JASON MOTTE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Motte And The Cards Fight Cancer Together

On September 2nd, Jason Motte and the St. Louis Cardinals will promote a special event at Busch Stadium. The Pirates may be in town making an attempt to rob the Cards of a victory, but Motte and the home team will be tackling a different beast. Cancer. The special night is called “2014 Strike Out Cancer Theme Night at Busch”. Fans will receive a Jason Motte bobblehead with the...

Why the Cardinals should sign Jason Motte to an extension.

Last year I made the case for letting Carlos Beltran walk when he became a free agent after the season.  His age, asking price and the fact that the Cardinals could insert Matt Adams into the lineup made the decision relatively easy.This year, Jason Motte is in the last year of his two-year, $12 million contract extension that he signed back in January 2013.  Unfortunately for...

Tommy John surgery isn't about to change Motte's attitude on the mound

ST. LOUIS -- No shortage of questions come with the return of Jason Motte to the Cardinals' bullpen. Such as: Can he be effective if he's throwing his fastball "only" 95 mph, as he did in his minor-league rehabs, instead of 98-99 mph that earned him the closer's job? When will he be able to pitch on consecutive days? What will be his role? Answers to those and...

Cardinals activate Motte from 15-day DL

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals have activated reliever Jason Motte from the 15-day disabled list. The 31-year-old Motte had elbow surgery last May and missed the entire season.

Who’s Got The Motte?

Motte tweets 'birthday' greetings to his repaired elbow

    ST. LOUIS -- The one-year anniversary of Jason Motte's Tommy John surgery might have passed Wednesday unnoticed by Cardinal Nation, but not by the name himself. Late Wednesday night, @JMotte30 sent out his own "birthday" wish on Twitter: If you know Motte, you know he was having a little fun. He doesn't take himself seriously enough to truly be upset that...

Although injured, Jason Motte might hold key to St. Louis Cardinals bullpen

The man who closed out the 2011 World Series championship for the St. Louis Cardinals and saved 42 games for them a season later has not pitched in a competitive situation in more than a year, but he might turn out to be one of the most important pitchers on the 2014 team’s staff. Jason Motte tore a ligament in his right elbow during spring training in 2013 and had Tommy John...

Thinking About Jason Motte

Jason Motte.  What about Jason Motte? He was a late season revelation in 2011 that parlayed his opportunity into 42 saves in 2012. He's also the first winner of the Darryl Kile Award - given and voted on since 2004 by the Cardinals to an inspirational teammate - to not play a single inning in his award winning season.  By all accounts, this is a dude that you...

Jason Motte nearing a very unusual record

On Sunday in Chicago, St. Louis Cardinals closer Jason Motte recorded his sixth save in his club’s last six wins. His heavy usage is due to the reality that each win is very important as the Cardinals cling to a two-game lead in the second National League wild card race. It isn’t just a recent phenomenon, however. With his 40th save of the season on Sunday, Motte became only...
