Jason Motte: Inks Two-Year Deal With Cards

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: Motte and the Cardinals agreed to a two-year, $12 million contract on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration.

Recommendation: Motte's first full season at closer was an unqualified success, as he saved 42 games while delivering excellent numbers in nearly every category (2.75 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, 5.06 K/BB ratio). While not on the level of the Braves' Craig Kimbrel, Motte should be viewed as a top-five closer in most fantasy formats.
