The St. Louis Cardinals placed closer Jason Motte on the disabled list on Friday because of a strained right elbow.
The team offered no timetable for Motte's possible return.
While Motte is sidelined, Mitchell Boggs will serve as the Cardinals' closer.
Motte had a league-leading 42 saves and a 2.75 ERA in 2012, which was his first full season as a closer.
