  • Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Drives in two runs

    Molina went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI in Friday's 5-3 win over the Pirates.

    Molina contributed a two-run single during the Cardinals' four-run rally in the sixth inning. The catcher has multiple hits in three of his last six games. He's up to a .250/.250/.352 slash line with two home runs, eight RBI, eight runs scored and a stolen base through 88 plate appearances this year. It's a little concerning he has yet to draw a walk after posting at least a five percent walk rate in four of the last five years -- he's never had an on-base percentage lower than .274 in a full season.

    Molina is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Molina went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts during Game 1, and it's not a surprise he won't be starting both games of the twin bill. Andrew Knizner will take over behind the plate and bat ninth.

  • Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Belts first long ball

    Molina went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in a 7-1 victory versus the Giants on Thursday.

    The veteran backstop came into the contest with only one extra-base hit (a double) on the season, but he was able to break that drought with a a third-inning solo homer to left field. Molina later singled and scored in the fifth inning to put a bow on his best offensive performance of the campaign. Molina could be breaking out of a season-long slump, as he's batting .321 (9-for-28) over his past eight contests.

  • Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Ready to go Wednesday

    Molina is starting at catcher and will bat eighth against the Royals on Wednesday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    After missing Tuesday's loss to the Royals while dealing with an illness, Molina is ready to go for Wednesday's rubber match. The 39-year-old has gotten off to a slow start this season, batting .208 with one extra-base hit while still looking for his first RBI. If his struggles continue, Andrew Knizner figures to gain more playing time as the year goes on.

  • Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Dealing with illness

    Molina's absence from the lineup Tuesday against the Royals is due to an illness, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    The illness explains why Molina will be out of the lineup for the third consecutive game, but he's tested negative for COVID-19, so he could return to action soon. Andrew Knizner remains the starter until he returns.

  • Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Scratched from lineup

    Molina was scratched from the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals for undisclosed reasons.

    Molina was out of the lineup for consecutive games Sunday and Monday, but the Cardinals didn't announce any sort of injury. Given that he'll miss yet another start Tuesday, it seems likely that he's dealing with some sort of issue, but the Cardinals still haven't specified what that would be. Andrew Knizner will get another start behind the plate in his absence.

  • Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Absent from lineup again

    Molina is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals.

    After making four straight starts behind the dish, Molina received a breather for Sunday's 7-5 win over the Diamondbacks, but his absence from the lineup for the second day in a row is more suspect. The Cardinals haven't yet indicated that an injury is the cause of Molina sitting out Monday, so it's possible the team just wanted to build in consecutive rest days for the veteran during a busy portion of the schedule. Andrew Knizner will pick up another turn behind the dish in Molina's stead.

  • Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Day off Sunday

    Molina is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Molina started the last four games and will receive a well-deserved day off in the series finale versus Arizona. Andrew Knizner will work behind the plate Sunday, forming a battery with Jordan Hicks.

  • Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Posts first steal

    Molina went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Thursday's 8-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Molina stole three bases in 2021, so it's not too surprising to see him still run on the rare occasion at 39 years old. The catcher has received more regular rest this season while managing some soreness early on. He has a .200/.200/.225 slash line with a double, no RBI and two runs scored through 40 plate appearances. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect him to play more than three games in a row very often.

  • Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Resting Tuesday

    Molina is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

  • Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Back in action

    Molina (soreness) is back in action as expected for Tuesday's game against Miami, batting eighth and catching for Adam Wainwright, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Molina missed the last three games with what the Cardinals simply called "soreness," but he's ready to go following Monday's off day. He'll look to get going at the plate following a slow start that saw him go 2-for-15 in his first four games.

  • Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Dealing with soreness

    Molina is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers with what Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol termed as "soreness," John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Molina appears to be dealing with general body fatigue rather than any sort of injury, even though he'll be on the bench for the third game in a row. Marmol already said that Molina will be back behind the plate for Tuesday's game in Miami, catching Opening Day starter Adam Wainwright in that contest. From there, Marmol suggested that Molina and No. 2 backstop Andrew Knizner could split starts at catcher until Molina's soreness subsides.
