Rockies | Jason Motte activated from DL

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:15:12 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jason Motte (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday, May 25. In a corresponding move, RP Boone Logan (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Motte has potential to work his way into some save situations down the line, but for now, he is nothing more than a desperation stash in cavernous mixed and NL-only formats. And while Jake McGee is a prime trade candidate, there is no guarantee Motte emerges as his successor.

Rockies | Jason Motte could be activated soon

Sun, 15 May 2016 07:58:34 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jason Motte (shoulder) began a rehab assignment with Class AAA Albuquerque Wednesday, May 11, tossing a scoreless inning in his first appearance. He is expected to be activated from the disabled list within the next few days and is likely to be used in a setup role.

Fantasy Tip: Motte can be ignored outside of deep NL-only fantasy formats for now, although he could be used to close games if Jake McGee struggles down the line.

Sun, 08 May 2016 18:44:59 -0700

Rockies | Jason Motte to face hitters

Thu, 05 May 2016 23:15:50 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jason Motte (shoulder) will face hitters Friday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: Motte isn't worth owning right now, but he could enter the closing equation if Jake McGee falters. McGee has a 5.59 ERA, but five of his six earned runs this season came in one outing.

Rockies | Jason Motte still recovering

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 16:02:20 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jason Motte (shoulder) remains in Arizona. He's making some progress and is doing strengthening exercises, according to trainer Keith Dugger. "The next step for him is to start playing catch and we should see that in the next couple of days. He's pain-free. We are just letting it heal a little bit," Dugger said.

Fantasy Tip: Motte was in consideration for closing duties before he was injured this spring. Now Jake McGee seems firmly entrenched in the ninth inning, but he could have a short leash, meaning Motte could see some closing opportunities later this year if McGee falters. Keep Motte on your radar in deeper leagues if you're chasing saves.

Rockies | Jason Motte strengthening shoulder

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 16:02:59 -0700

Colorado Rockies RP Jason Motte (shoulder) began a strengthening program Monday, April 4.

Fantasy Tip: Motte is a speculative stash for save chasers in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Continue to check back for updates on his recovery and return timeline, but he wasn't impressive in 2015. Motte posted an underwhelming 3.91 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 6.3 K/9 through 48 1/3 innings.
