In his first outing since returning from Tommy John surgery, Jason Motte pitched 1.2 scoreless innings and gave up one hit with one strikeout against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Motte was stellar in his season debut on Wednesday, but continued to display loss in velocity (93 MPH) since averaging out at 97 MPH back in his glory days. Although the Cardinals will give Trevor Rosenthal every chance to get things right, with the return of Motte, there is a chance a change could come int he ninth inning sooner rather than later. Rosenthal owners will want to add Motte as a handcuff as a safety blanket in the near future.
