Motte landed on the 10-day disabled list Friday due to a right oblique strain.

EDGE Analysis

Motte threw 17 pitches during Thursday's loss to the Cubs, giving up two earned runs in just an inning of work. It appears as though the right-hander suffered the injury at some point during his outing, although it isn't apparent when it could've happened. This marks the second time this season that Motte has been placed on the shelf, with the other coming in mid-July due to a back strain. As of this point, there has been no word on a timetable for the 35-year-old.

Motte (back) was reinstated from the 10-day DL on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Motte will return to the club after nearing a month without action, as his last major-league appearance occurred July 5 against the Astros. The reliever was able to make another rehab appearance Wednesday, tossing a perfect inning with Triple-A Gwinnett. In a corresponding move, the Braves placed Ian Krol on the 10-day DL with a strained left oblique.

Motte (back) could return to the Braves on Friday, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Motte has been on the disabled list since the All-Star break with a back strain, but was able to make two rehab appearances with Triple-A Gwinnett over the past week. It appears likely that the 25-year-old returns to the bullpen prior to Friday's series opener with Miami, settling back into a high-leverage role with the club.

Motte (back) began a rehab assignment Saturday at High-A Rome, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Motte has missed the past two weeks with the back strain. Expect him to make another one or two rehab appearances before making his return at some point in early August.

Motte (back) was put on the 10-day DL prior to Friday's game against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Motte suffered a back strain while warming up in the bullpen during Sunday's contest, and wasn't able to recover over the All-Star break. The reliever should be able to return once he's eligible to come off the disabled list barring any setbacks, but could wind up making a few rehab appearances if the team feels as though he could benefit from them. In a corresponding move, the Braves recalled Jason Hursh from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Motte suffered a back strain when he was warming up in the bullpen Sunday, but the injury is not believed to be serious, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was checked out by the training staff and while he obviously did not make it into the game, it sounds like he will avoid a DL stint and could be ready to pitch after the All-Star break. Motte has a 6.07 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and three blown saves in his last 13.1 innings.

Motte has allowed six runs on five hits over his last two appearances (one inning).

EDGE Analysis

The 35-year-old had allowed only five runs all season prior to the disastrous series against the Astros. Motte's ERA was at a solid 1.78 prior to the last two outings, but now has a 3.76 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with 19 strikeouts across 26.1 innings for the season.

Motte (1-0) pitched a scoreless eighth inning and was the pitcher of record when Atlanta took the lead in Monday's win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Motte has seen an increased role out of the Atlanta bullpen of late, and his 2.08 ERA and 1.15 WHIP are solid numbers. However, he's also held opponents to an unsustainably low .196 BABIP, and his 6.2 K/9 is way down from last season's 9.1 mark. His 5.62 FIP over the past two seasons shouldn't instill confidence, either.

Motte hasn't allowed a run in 12 straight appearances (11 innings).

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty got shelled in his first outing against the Brewers, but has allowed only five hits during his scoreless streak. Motte has worked his way into higher-leverage situations with Atlanta, and has recorded a hold in each of his last three outings. His K/9 is only at 6.8, but a 1.50 ERA and 1.17 WHIP for the season could provide some value going forward.
