Dec. 15 5:28 PM PT6:28 PM MT7:28 PM CT8:28 PM ET20:28 ET1:28 GMT9:28 6:28 PM MST8:28 PM EST8:58 PM VEN5:28 UAE (+1)7:28 PM CT-A person with direct knowledge of the deal says veteran reliever Jason Motte has agreed to a $4.5 million, one-year contract with the Chicago Cubs. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Monday night on condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the agreement. The contract is pending a physical and includes bonuses that could increase the value to $7 million.
Analysis: Motte was one of the major leagues' top closers in 2012, when he had 42 saves for St. Louis. But he had elbow-ligament replacement surgery in May 2013 and missed that whole season. He returned this year and went 1-0 with a 4.68 ERA in 29 games with the Cardinals. The deal with Motte gives Chicago another big arm for its bullpen and continues an impressive offseason for the Cubs. They also signed left-hander Jon Lester and traded for catcher Miguel Montero.

Analysis: The team announced its roster Thursday, when the Cardinals worked out in 95-degree heat at Dodger Stadium.

Motte has pitched 22 innings in 24 appearances this season with a 4.91 ERA.
Analysis: The move, announced Friday, is retroactive to Aug. 1. The 32-year-old Motte underwent elbow ligament surgery in May 2013 and started this season on the DL. He made his 2014 debut May 21.
Mar. 30 1:49 PM PT2:49 PM MT3:49 PM CT4:49 PM ET16:49 ET20:49 GMT4:49 1:49 PM MST3:49 PM EST4:19 PM VEN0:49 UAE (+1)3:49 PM CT-The St. Louis Cardinals activated Motte from the 15-day disabled list, and might need their old closer right away. The 31-year-old Motte had elbow surgery last May and missed the entire season. He had 42 saves in 2012, tied for the National League lead.
Analysis: Manager Mike Matheny said Trevor Rosenthal was unavailable Tuesday for the start of a three-game series against Arizona. The Cardinals had a day off Monday and Rosenthal is getting extra rest after his second blown save in five appearances. Motte said he was ready for anything and joked he didn't return with any new pitches.
