    • Molina (groin) is scheduled to see a doctor Thursday to help determine when he might able to resume physical activity, Sean Collins of MLB.com reports. The Cardinals are trying to get some guidance on when the veteran backstop might be able do anything more than just completely rest, which has been the norm thus far. Molina is still reportedly far removed from being able to return to game action, but Thursday's evaluation should provide further clarity on when his rehabilitation process might begin.

    • Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Officially moved to DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Molina (groin) has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, and the Cardinals expect the backstop to miss "at least four weeks." Molina exited Saturday's game after taking a foul tip to the groin region, and it was later revealed that he required emergency surgery and would miss at least a month. Per Joe Trezza of MLB.com, the team is calling it a "pelvic injury with traumatic hematoma." While Molina is on the shelf, look for Francisco Pena to see plenty of reps behind the plate. Carson Kelly was also recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

    • Molina underwent surgery Saturday after being hit in the groin area by a foul ball earlier in the day in the Cardinals' 8-6 win over the Cubs, Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak relayed that Molina would be sidelined for at least a month while recovering from surgery. Molina was in serious pain after suffering the injury in the nith inning Saturday and had difficulty walking to the dugout when he was removed from the contest. Francisco Pena came on to replace Molina and should see his opportunities increase while the eight-time All-Star is out, but Pena will likely be forced to compete for at-bats with Carson Kelly, the organization's top catching prospect. Kelly was scratched from his game at Triple-A Memphis on Saturday after news of Molina's injury surfaced, suggesting the 23-year-old will receive an official promotion Sunday while Molina presumably heads to the 10-day disabled list.

    • Molina exited Saturday's extra-inning win over the Cubs in the ninth inning after taking a foul tip to the groin, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports. The impact was severe, considering the foul ball came on a 101.5 mph fastball off the bat of Kris Bryant. Molina remained on the field for several minutes while huddling with the Cardinals training staff before exiting the game. The veteran backstop is considered day-to-day, but Trezza notably reports that Carson Kelly, the organization's top catching prospect, was a late scratch from Triple-A Memphis' Saturday night game against Nashville in anticipation of a potential promotion.
