Yep, their value has went up. Every team wants more relievers.

Might as well throw Mitchell Boggs and Kyle McClellan into the mix.

Coming from truly dirt poor to driving anything you desire.:-) Still dresses old school middle class.:-)

His skills may be diminishing because of age but he is still working hard to stay in shape. He lives in Jupiter in the off season to keep working between vacations. Spends time with the minor leaguers there coaching them up.

I loved the guy ever since the NY playoff game when I had already had tickets to the WS. He made it possible for me and my son to see a WS won in person. Forever grateful.

When he is done, he's going to get "something" at the stadium. Statue, area named after him etc.

Why not? Sign DJ up. keep the bodies coming.

Meathead is going to run a successful reliever into the ground so we are going to need more bodies.

The Cardinals have struck a minor-league pact with veteran reliever Jason Motte, per Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (via Twitter). The agreement is still pending a physical. Chris Cotillo of SB Nation first connected the sides on Twitter.

Motte, 35, rejoins his long-time organization after a three-year hiatus. The former Cards closer has spent time with the Cubs, Rockies, and Braves since the start of 2015.

There’s little question that Motte did not regain his prior form after missing all of 2013 for Tommy John surgery. The converted catcher had posted 192 1/3 innings of 2.43 ERA pitching over the prior three seasons at that point. Since, he has allowed 4.12 earned per nine over 137 2/3 innings, with 6.7 K/9 against 3.1 BB/9.

Motte once averaged about a 12 percent swinging-strike rate and roughly 97 mph heater. Since returning from surgery, Motte has declined precipitously in both regards. He generated whiffs at a marginal 7.6% rate last year and averaged 93.8 mph with his heater.

To be fair, Motte found a way to succeed despite managing only 6.0 K/9 against 4.4 BB/9 in his 40 2/3 innings in 2017. He ended the season with a 3.54 ERA, after all. But there’s little reason to believe that Motte will be able to replicate a .200 batting average on balls in play.

I understand putting together a huge bucket of relievers and see who still has it, has recovered to prior form or is ascending. And I approve.

Relievers in 2018 are a violate bunch, You never know from year to year what performance you will get from these guys.

I hope that its just a friendly deal to retire a Cardinal. He was a fun guy to watch in 2011. He contributed significantly to that championship. Was more of a down to earth player than most. I liked the guy a lot. But, as a MLB pitcher, he is done.

I always liked Motte, but does he have anything left? I guess a minor league deal can't hurt.
