Cardinals | Jason Motte feeling good

St. Louis Cardinals RP Jason Motte (elbow) said he felt fine after throwing for the second straight day Sunday, April 28. "I woke up this morning and didn't take a step back," Motte said Sunday. "It felt good. If it didn't feel good I don't think we'd have moved forward." The Cardinals said earlier this month that if Motte hadn't improved by the beginning of May he would likely have season-ending reconstructive surgery. Motte plans to play catch again Monday, April 29, unless he had a setback. "If it's June and I'm not chucking, we need to do something," Motte said.

Fantasy Tip: This is obviously great news for Motte owners, but he's not in the clear yet by any stretch of the imagination. One little setback could make the difference in having to undergo season-ending surgery. Edward Mujica is perfect in four save chances and will likely continue to receive save chances with Motte out. Trevor Rosenthal lurks in the background for saves if Mujica falters.
