The Cardinals do not plan to send rehabbing right-hander Jason Motte out on a Minor League rehab assignment until next month, general manager John Mozeliak said.
We were originally led to believe that Motte was going to be back by mid-May, but now it would appear that he's looking at closer to the end of the month depending on when they actually send him on his assignment. Once he returns, he is expected to settle into an eighth-inning set-up role and will be an excellent source for holds.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Zach Miller caught two passes on seven targets for 10 yards and a TD on Thursday night vs Green Bay.
Miller got the start in place of the injured Martellus Bennett on Thursday night. In all, he finished with two catches and a touchdown on seven targets, looking mediocre, however doing his best with the hand he was dealt. Anyone who started him in daily leagues could have expected better, however it is a bit spoiled to come away with much more than a TD as a definite backup. Consider him a wise play on Thursday night, and a keen start going forward at least until Bennett comes back healthy. Analysis: Dom Murtha
