Jason Motte expected to start regular season on DL

Jason Motte will likely start the regular season on the DL due to a strained shoulder.

Fantasy Impact

Motte was one of several offseason acquisitions made in effort to improve the team's bullpen. While Motte should see late-inning work when he returns, Jake McGee is expected to be the team's closer.

Jason Motte signs with the Rockies

Jason Motte signed a two-year/10 million dollar contract with the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

Motte is pegged to be the likely closer for the Rockies, as they lost John Axford to free agency, making him a must-watch this preseason to determine his fantasy value. Motte had right-shoulder fatigue late last season and was on the DL, and while he passed a physical, it is still worth monitoring. Motte would be a late-round flier in drafts, moving to around the 20th-ranked closer mark if given the position.

Cubs' Jason Motte placed on DL

The Cubs have placed RP Jason Motte on the 15-day disabled list with a strained shoulder. The injury is expected to sideline Motte for three-to-four weeks.

Fantasy Impact

Motte hasn't been overly effective this year, but considering the mess that's been the Cubs' bullpen he's proved useful for the team. The veteran posted a 3.91 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 34 strikeouts over 48.1 innings. He also tallied six saves for Chicago.

Jason Motte fails to close down the ninth inning for second time this week

Jason Motte had himself another rough night, failing to record an out in the ninth inning with a three run lead. He finished with three earned runs but Rafael Soriano had to come in and finish the inning.

Fantasy Impact

Motte seemed to have the closer role locked down as recently as earlier in the week, but now with the arrival of Rafael Soriano and the possibility of a Jonathan Papelbon trade, things are not looking good for the bearded right hander. He is now sporting a 3.49 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP.

Cubs sign Jason Motte to one year deal

The Cubs have agreed to terms with former Cardinals reliever Jason Motte on a one year deal. Motte struggled last season after missing all of 2013 following Tommy John surgery. He posted a 4.68 ERA in 25 innings. Motte's best season was in 2012 when he recorded 42 saves while posting a 10.75 K/9 ratio in 72 innings.

Fantasy Impact

For the Cubs, the move provides the bullpen high upside depth with a veteran that has postseason experience for little to no risk. For Motte, he gets a chance to pitch for a possible contender while hoping to rebound and extended his career. The Cubs bullpen was above average the second half of last season and with Hector Rondon already filing the closer role, Motte needs to have a strong spring training and show he is healthy to earn his way onto the staff.
