(KMOV) -- Great Day St. Louis' Virginia Kerr was live with Jason Motte and his wife, Caitlin at KMOX's Charlie Brennan's Book Club.
After having season-ending Tommy John surgery on Tuesday, Motte said "I feel good. I have very little pain. I have to keep the elbow elevated a little bit."
During the surgery, "They took the tendon out of my left arm and put it into my right arm, my throwing arm" he said.
Jason and Caitlin are optimistic in a full recovery. Caitlin told Virginia, "He is doing great. I actually want him to slow down at home."
Jason and Caitlin have a four-month old baby and for their first Mother's Day they are going to the Susan G. Komen Day at the BallPark.
"We are selling Grab Bags for the Komen Foundation," Caitlin said.
