Motte's Rehab On Track

St. Louis relief pitcher Jason Motte is on a rehab assignment at Springfield.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The St. Louis Cardinals are very interested in what happened in the eighth inning of Tuesday's Springfield Cardinals game against Tulsa.

Relief pitcher Jason Motte saw another inning of play.

Motte underwent Tommy John surgery last year and missed the entire 2013 season.

The right handed closer has been with Springfield since late last week.

He pitched Sunday afternoon, and then Tuesday.

Motte got a 1-2-3 inning, including fielding a ball hit back at him.

So far in Springfield he's retired all six of the batters he's faced and says he feels great.

And says he'll stay with the club as it goes on this next roadtrip to Northwest Arkansas and Tulsa.

"I feel good today.  I went out there and the guys were swinging the bat.  I tried to throw strikes and get ahead of them.  I threw strikes and they hit the balls at people and I got out of it," said St. Louis pitcher Jason Motte.  "My arm's been recovering well.  That's the main thing when you're going through this.  It's how do you feel today.  But it's also how do you recover tomorrow.  And I threw on Sunday felt good that day, felt good Monday and I feel good today.  We'll see how I feel tomorrow and we'll go from there."
