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...

Could Jason Motte replace Trevor Rosenthal as Cardinals closer?

Last night Trevor Rosenthal blew a save in the Cardinals eventual 4-3 victory over the Cubs.  While that isn't very concerning, considering that Rosenthal had converted 10 straight saves prior to last night, what is concerning is that Trevor now has a 5.19 ERA while allowing 5.7 BB/9.Could Rosenthal's struggles open the door for Jason Motte to return to the closer role?Its possible...

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.

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...

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. "It won't be a normal spring training," he says, and that's about all the specifics he knows regarding his comeback. Motte headed to Camp Jupiter last week to begin a throwing program that, barring setbacks, would put him back in the bullpen...

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...
