    INJURY ALERT: Questionable | Thumb | Questionable for start of season
    Player News
    • Molina underwent a second procedure on his thumb Tuesday and is expected to miss a large portion of Spring Training, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. According to Langosch, Molina's first thumb ligament surgery in October was unsuccessful, which led to him needing a follow-up procedure. The need for a second procedure will likely keep him out for most of spring training, but there has not been any indication that Tuesday's surgery will impact his availability for Opening Day. That said, there will be some worry about Molina's lack of Spring Training reps leading into a slow start at the dish in 2016.

    • Cardinals veteran catcher Yadier Molina will have surgery Thursday to repair his injured left thumb, reports Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com. This seemed to be the logical next step when Molina was unable to participate in Game 4 of the National League Division Series after gutting through the first three games against the Cubs. He will likely need 2-3 months to recover from the surgery, which should making him available for the start of spring training.

    • Molina was a late scratch from Tuesday's NLDS Game 4 lineup, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. It turns out Molina's ailing left thumb would jeopardize his Game 4 status after all. Manager Mike Matheny relayed that the veteran backstop could catch if forced into duty, but the decision to bench him was a direct result of his inability to swing the bat. Obviously, this will likely damper his chances at logging a pinch-hit at-bat for the rest of the series and potentially further if the Cardinals manage to advance in the postseason.

      Cardinals standout catcher Yadier Molina is in the lineup for Game 4 of the National League Division Series on Tuesday. Molina left Game 3 early with what appeared to be some discomfort in his oft-injured left thumb, but with the Cardinals attempting to stave off elimination manager Mike Matheny will go back to his veteran backstop once more and bat him eighth.

    • Cardinals C Yadier Molina will start Game 1 of NLDS
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cardinals standout catcher Yadier Molina (thumb) will start Game 1 of the National League Division Series. Molina missed most of the final few weeks of the regular season with a sprained left thumb, prompting some sources to speculate he could be left off the postseason roster. However, after a strong showing in the batting cage during the weekend, Mike Matheny opted not only to have Molina active, but to also start the opener. He will take over his typical position behind the plate and bat seventh.
