Cardinals reliever Jason Motte has some discomfort in his right shoulder on Monday night and received an MRI on Tuesday. Motte has some inflammation in the AC joint in his throwing shoulder.

Motte says it is minor and he doesn’t expect to miss a lot of time. He pitched two days in a row, so he was unavailable Tuesday night. The training staff will keep him out for Wednesday’s game and with Thursday’s off day, that will give Motte three days to rest up.
