Cardinals | Jason Motte expected to begin season on DL

St. Louis Cardinals CL Jason Motte (forearm) is expected to begin the season on the disabled list because of a mild muscle forearm strain. After tossing a pain-free inning against the New York Mets Thursday, March 21, Motte began experiencing pain in his right forearm on the bus ride back to the team's spring training complex. An MRI exam taken the following day revealed the strain. Motte has been shut down indefinitely and general manager John Mozeliak said there is no timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: RP Mitchell Boggs, who served as the Cards' setup man last season, will act as the closer in Motte's absence.
