Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak told reporters that reliever Jason Motte will likely need 2-3 weeks of rehab work before he is back from the disabled list.
This is standard procedure for a pitcher returning from Tommy John surgery. Motte won't be as effective as he was pre-surgery, but he should be able to build arm strength in low pressure situations upon his return. He's worth a stash in Holds leagues as he should emerge as a setup man later this season.ANALYST: David Kerr
The Raiders could be interested in free agent wide receiver Randall Cobb.
Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie drafted Cobb in his final year as the Packers' Director of Player Personnel. McKenzie apparently wants to reunite Cobb with his former mentor James Jones, who signed with the Raiders last offseason and was the team's most consistent receiver throughout the 2014 season. The question is, would the Raiders be able to convince Cobb to sign with them? They'll likely need to comfortably outbid the next highest bidder to earn rights to his services. If this scenario were to actually come to fruition, Derek Carr would get a nice boost in fantasy value. Analysis: Spencer Silva
