Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Undergoes second thumb surgery, set to miss most of spring training
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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.

Report: Cardinals C Yadier Molina set for thumb surgery Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

St. Louis 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 Chicago Cubs .

He will likely need 2-3 months to recover from the surgery, which should making him available for the start of spring training.

Cardinals C Yadier Molina to meet with hand specialist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

St. Louis Cardinals standout catcher Yadier Molina will meet with a hand specialist Wednesday to determine if surgery is required to repair his injured thumb, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Molina was scheduled to meet with a team doctor after Game 4 anyway, but with the team now eliminated, he could opt for surgery to repair his thumb which appeared to worsen throughout the playoffs. It's unclear if Molina will be healthy enough to participate in spring training next season, but discovering the severity of the injury should go along way in determining his status moving forward.

Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Late scratch from Game 4 of NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yadier 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 St. Louis Cardinals manage to advance in the postseason.

Cardinals C Yadier Molina set to start Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

St. Louis 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.
