Jason Motte (elbow) threw to a couple of minor-leaguers Friday morning. His command wasn't good, but perhaps that's to be expected.
Motte hopes to fill a set up role for the Cardinals this season. He posses no immediate threat to Trevor Rosenthal for 9th inning duties for the Cardinals and the plan is for the younger Rosnethal to close all year long.ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Hassan Whiteside (hand) will not play Sunday.
Whiteside has been great this season, but it will be hard to trust him next season considering all the games he has missed. With Chris Andersen out as well, Udonis Haslem will have to play nearly all of the minutes at center for Miami. Michael Beasley should see more playing time as well.Both are decent fantasy plays.
