Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - St. Louis Cardinals closer Jason Motte will
undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery.
KTVI-TV FOX 2 reported Friday that the Cards' closer is set to go under the
knife on Monday.
Motte, who agreed to a two-year contract in January after tying for the
National League lead with 42 saves last season, was sidelined during spring
training with a strained right elbow and placed on the disabled list at the
outset of the season after a diagnosis of a muscle flexor strain.
The 30-year-old has made 282 relief appearances since breaking into the
majors in 2008, going 17-13 with 54 saves and a 2.87 ERA.
