Jason Motte (elbow) ramped up the intensity Monday, throwing 20-25 pitches to Minor Leaguers. "I'm pretty close [to maxing out]," Motte said when asked where he felt he was at in his rehab.
Barring any major setbacks, he should be ready to join the Cardinals bullpen by mid-April.

Motte hopes to fill the role of setup man for the Cardinals this year in front of young fireballer Trevor Rosenthal. Motte should be able to see the field in April and is a decent end game grab in NL-only leagues.
