UPDATES & NEWS
Cardinals closer Jason Motte underwent successful elbow surgery Tuesday, performed by the team physician in St. Louis.
Now that Jason Motte has gone under the knife, if you haven't already, go ahead and drop him from your roster. The best case scenario si that Motte will be back by Spring Training next season, but that is being extremely optimistic. Fantasy players should keep him in mind for the 2014 drafts, as he may come at an extremely cheap price in both snake drafts and auction leagues.

This news is like reading about how eating McDonald's every day will make you fat and healthy. We already knew the inevitable was coming for Jason Motte, but this is the nail in the coffin. He will be meaningless in any kind of fantasy format for at least the next 10-12 months.ANALYST:
Odubel Herrera will bat leadoff for the Phillies on Sunday.
The Phillies like his bat, which is why they made him a Rule 5 pick from Texas. He figures to play all three outfield positions as well as second base this spring. He will likely be a bench player out of camp if he can hit this spring. He did show some power development in the Venezuelan Winter League, but it remains to be seen if that is something that moves forward for him or not. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
