Cardinals' Taylor Motter: Returns to bench role
Motter is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mets.
Motter picked up his fourth straight start in the middle infield in Thursday's 4-2 loss in the series opener, but he'll remain on the bench for the third straight contest as the Cardinals close out their four-game set with the Mets.

The Cardinals selected Motter's contract from Triple-A Memphis on Sunday. He'll start at second base and bat eighth in the Cardinals' series finale with the Cubs.

Motter was signed to a minor-league contract in November, and the 33-year-old has impressed in the Grapefruit League with an .810 OPS, three homers and a pair of steals over 17 games. He's also capable of playing in the infield and outfield, so he brings versatility at the end of the St. Louis bench if he does make the roster.
