News: Motte, who is recovering from a lower back strain, has not been cleared to begin throwing, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Impact: Motte hoped to return when eligible but now looks to miss a month or more with the ailment. It's been a disappointing season for Motte, who hoped to return from Tommy John surgery and find the success he had before, but he's posted a 4.91 ERA and an even uglier 6.90 FIP.(RotoWire, )

News: Motte (back) is not expected to return from the disabled list until September, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports. Impact: Motte is not yet throwing after he was placed on the disabled list last Friday, putting him off track to return in the 15-day minimum. Once he starts throwing, Motte would still likely require a rehab assignment, pushing him return to the St. Louis bullpen back a few days further. He's hardly looked like the dominant closer of old coming off Tommy John surgery that wiped out his 2013 season, posting a 4.91 ERA and striking out 16 batters in 22 innings.(RotoWire, )

News: Motte (back) is hoping to return from lower back strain Sunday but the Cardinals are not optimistic about his chances, MLB.com reports. Impact: The Cardinals would like Motte to pitch in some rehab games, something he is still unable to do. The more likely scenario is that Motte will return toward the middle or end of next week.(RotoWire, )

News: The St. Louis Cardinals have placed right-handed reliever Jason Motte on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back sprain. Motte has pitched 22 innings in 24 appearances this season with a 4.91 ERA. Impact: The move, announced Friday, is retroactive to Aug. 1. The 32-year-old Motte underwent elbow ligament surgery in May 2013 and started this season on the DL. He made his 2014 debut May 21. (STATS, 5:18pm)

News: Motte was placed on the 15-day DL on Friday with a lower back strain. Impact: Motte hasn't pitched since Aug. 1 and this explains why. With the stint made retroactive to Aug. 2, the right-hander will be eligible to return as soon as next Saturday, but it's uncertain whether he'll be ready by that time. Lefty Nick Greenwood was recalled to replace Motte, who has posted a 4.91 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 24 appearances this season.(RotoWire, )
