  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Back in No. 2 role

    Knizner is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    With Yadier Molina (knee) back from the 10-day injured list and stepping into the lineup Tuesday, Knizner is expected to serve as St. Louis' No. 2 backstop moving forward. Knizner finally started to find a rhythm at the plate in July with a .280/.345/.320 slash line on the month, but he's still holding down a poor .575 OPS over 194 plate appearances on the season.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: On bench for series finale

    Knizner is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals.

    Knizner will get a much-needed breather after he started behind the plate in each of the past six games. Austin Romine will relieve Knizner of catching duties in the series finale, but both players are likely to settle into reserve roles as soon as Tuesday, when No. 1 backstop Yadier Molina (knee) is expected to be activated from the injured list.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Idle Sunday

    Knizner is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    He'll get a breather for the day game, paving the way for Austin Romine to get a turn behind the dish. Knizner appears to have re-established himself as St. Louis' top backstop in the absence of the injured Yadier Molina (knee) after going 7-for-15 with five RBI while starting at catcher in five of the Cardinals' previous six contests.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Drives in three

    Knizner went 3-for-4 with three RBI in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Dodgers.

    Knizner hit RBI singles in the second, fourth and eighth innings, with the last of those three knocks providing the margin of victory. The catcher hadn't posted a multi-hit game since May 22, and this was his second three-hit effort of the season. He's gone 5-for-21 (.238) in July and owns a .197/.288/.246 slash line with a home run, 16 RBI, 10 runs scored and four doubles in 55 contests overall.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Overtakes Romine on depth chart

    Knizner will start at catcher and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Phillies.

    Though Knizner sat three times during a four-game stretch last week, he appears to have taken back the Cardinals' primary catcher role from Austin Romine. Knizner will be included in the lineup for the third time in four contests despite having produced an .096 batting average dating back to the start of June.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Takes seat Thursday

    Knizner isn't starting Thursday against Atlanta, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Knizner went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Wednesday and will be out of the lineup for the third time in the last four games. Austin Romine is starting behind the dish and batting ninth, and he appears to be the slight favorite for playing time behind the dish for now.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Sits in second straight game

    Knizner is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against Atlanta.

    Though he appeared to have returned to the No. 1 spot on the depth chart after Ivan Herrera was recently optioned to Triple-A Memphis, and while Yadier Molina (knee) remains on the injured list, Knizner will end up sitting for the second game in a row. New call-up Austin Romine will make another turn behind the plate as the Cardinals look to see if he can provide an upgrade over Knizner, who has produced a .523 OPS over his 145 plate appearances on the season.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Gets third start in four games

    Knizner will start at catcher and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Phillies.

    The Cardinals gave Ivan Herrera a look as their No. 1 backstop to begin last week, but the rookie was unable to run away with the job. As a result, Knizner -- who is starting for the third time in four games -- looks like he'll receive another trial as the team's primary backstop while Yadier Molina (knee) remains on the injured list. Knizner has been one of baseball's least-productive hitters among players with at least 100 plate appearances, as he'll take a .185/.284/.242 slash line and 60 wRC+ into Sunday's contest.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Appears stuck in backup role

    Knizner remains out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Marlins, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Knizner is on the bench for the third game in a row and looks as though he'll serve as the Cardinals' No. 2 catcher even while top backstop Yadier Molina (knee) faces an uncertain timeline to return from the 10-day injured list. Per Jones, manager Oliver Marmol said he intended to give Ivan Herrera a trial as the Cardinals' primary catcher, so Knizner may be asked to make only a start or two per week if Herrera performs well enough to hang on to the No. 1 role.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Remains out of lineup

    Knizner isn't starting Monday against Miami, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Knizner is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Takes seat Sunday

    Knizner is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    Knizner has taken over as the Cardinals' No. 1 backstop in the wake of Yadier Molina (knee) landing on the injured list Friday, but the former will give way to Ivan Herrera behind the dish in the series finale in Boston. While starting in both of the first two games of the series, Knizner went 1-for-6 with a double, two walks, two runs and an RBI.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: In line to serve as primary catcher

    Knizner is in line to serve as the Cardinals' primary catcher for the near future since Yadier Molina (knee) will be placed on the 10-day injured list Friday, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    The 27-year-old started in six of the last nine games since Molina was dealing with persistent knee soreness, and Knizner went 1-for-18 with a walk and four strikeouts during that time. Molina doesn't yet have a timetable to return, and Knizner will likely see most of the at-bats during the veteran's IL stint. However, the Cardinals will call up prospect Ivan Herrera on Friday, and he'll likely compete for playing time in the big leagues if Knizner continues to struggle at the plate.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Filling in for Molina again

    Knizner will start at catcher and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Pirates.

    Knizner will start for the fifth time in six games while Yadier Molina continues to nurse an unspecified injury. With Molina missing time of late, Knizner hasn't been able to capitalize on the added opportunities afforded to him. He's gone hitless with six strikeouts in 16 at-bats over his last five starts.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Returns to backup role

    Knizner is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against Milwaukee, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Knizner started the past three games with Yadier Molina (personal) on the bereavement list, but Molina is back with the team for Thursday's contest. Knizner has a solid .269/.364/.358 slash line for a backup catcher and should continue to see semi-regular playing time behind Molina.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Filling for Molina

    Knizner will start at catcher and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Blue Jays, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Knizner is likely to draw both of the starts behind the plate during the Cardinals' two-game series with the Blue Jays while top backstop Yadier Molina (personal) is back in Puerto Rico to tend to a family matter after being placed on the bereavement list. By catchers' standards, Knizner has been productive when given opportunities to play this season, as he carries a .262/.357/.361 slash line over 70 plate appearances into Monday's contest.

  • Cardinals' Andrew Knizner: Adds three RBI

    Knizner went 1-for-1 with a hit-by-pitch and three RBI in Sunday's 15-6 win over the Giants.

    Knizner hit a two-run single in the sixth inning when he pinch hit for Yadier Molina, then got plunked with the bases loaded in the seventh. Over his last three games, Knizner is 3-for-6, a vast improvement after he started May just 2-for-16 in his first six contests. Overall, the catcher is slashing a reasonable .245/.362/.367 with a home run, nine RBI, three runs scored and three doubles in 58 plate appearances.
