Jason Motte Names Son After Hall of Famer

In 2012, Jason Motte joined elite company in St. Louis when he finished the season with a career-high 42 saves.

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 most other questions...

What Date Will Motte Assume The Closer Role?

If you ever come across someone that doesn’t like the NBA, their general go-to line is “I don’t really like the NBA because those guys don’t even try until the 4th quarter” or some version of that sentiment. I’m not here to change your opinion on the NBA. If that’s what you believe? You’re wrong. I’d submit to you that in any sport in any level the last bit of competition...

Cards' Motte stays focused on healthy return to mound -- whenever that might be

ST. LOUIS -- Nearly nine months after undergoing Tommy John surgery, Cardinals reliever Jason Motte doesn't know when he'll return to the mound.

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 want...
