Cardinals | Jason Motte out for the year

St. Louis Cardinals RP Jason Motte (elbow) didn't feel comfortable throwing Friday, May 3, so he will undergo Tommy John surgery Monday, May 6. Motte will miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Signs had been pointing this way for some time now. Edward Mujica has taken the closer's job and run with it since Mitchell Boggs struggled in the role to start the season. Boggs was sent to the minors today.

In the long term, Trevor Rosenthal may be the best bet, but as long as Mujica is getting the job done, Rosenthal will be resigned to the setup role, for now. Mujica and Rosenthal should both be owned in all formats. Carlos Martinez was brought up to take Boggs' spot in the bullpen, but he isn't expected to enter the saves picture anytime soon.
