Molina is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers, Jim Hayes of FOX Sports Midwest reports. Molina will get a regular day off after starting the past four games behind the plate for the Cardinals. The 33-year-old will get an extra day of rest before the All-Star break begins.
Molina is not in the starting lineup on Tuesday. Brayan Pena will get the nod behind the plate for the Cardinals. Molina has been scuffling at the plate, only hitting .188 over the past 14 days.
