Jason Motte (elbow) said he expects to pitch in a Minor League game on Saturday. He has only thrown simulated games to this point.
Motte is battling back from Tommy John surgery and has not experienced any setbacks up to this point. When back in the mix he is expected to be the main setup man for Trevor Rosenthal, who is one of the top up-in-coming closers entering the 2014 season. If Rosenthal was to slip up at any point in the season, Motte would likely wind back up in the ninth inning role. Until then, he holds little to no fantasy value.
