Yadier Molina takes some hacks
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina was able to take some light swings Wednesday, according to CBSSports Radio.

Molina is working his way back from a thumb injury. He remains ahead of schedule and could return sooner than expected. Molina hit .287/.341/.409 over 303 at-bats.

Yadier Molina needs to be owned again
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

With the news he's been cleared to swing a bat and will do so within the next couple days, Yadier Molina needs to be added in virtually all of the 38 percent of leagues where he was dropped in early July, when the world learned he needed thumb surgery.

At the time, he was expected to miss 8-12 weeks, but as I mentioned in my latest Rankings Review, where I touch on several of the changes I made to my-rest-of-season rankings, swinging a bat would seem to the biggest hurdle following surgery on his thumb. The Cardinals are fighting for their lives right now, caught in a tight battle for both the NL Central title and the wild card, so they'd like to have him back as soon as possible.

Besides, the surgery was nearly six weeks ago, so even if his return is still two weeks away, a player of his caliber is worth that sort of wait.

Molina was in a deep funk at the time of his injury and still ranked sixth among catchers in Head-to-Head points leagues and ninth in Rotisserie. He ranked fourth and first in those formats a year ago.
