Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Will take it slow in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Molina (knee) said he expects to play his first spring training games in mid-March, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Molina is still working his way back from an offseason knee procedure that he underwent in December. While the veteran backstop noted that his balky knee will likely keep him from catching bullpens early in camp, he's hoping to be cleared to catch at the beginning of March, which would put him on track to be ready for Opening Day. Molina's status will obviously be worth monitoring as the season draws closer. Across 123 games in 2018, the backstop hit .261/.314/.436 with 20 homers and 74 RBI.

Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Set for minor procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Molina will undergo a minor knee procedure sometime this upcoming week, Brian Stull of St. Louis Baseball Weekly reports.

According to President of Baseball Operations John Mozeliak, Molina's surgery will be a "very small procedure" and anticipates the catcher to be sidelined for just a few days, so there doesn't appear to be any concern over his status moving forward. The procedure will take place in St. Louis by team doctors.

Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Clubs three-run home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Molina went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's 12-4 loss to the Brewers.

Molina connected for a three-run shot -- his 20th of the year -- off Gio Gonzalez in the fourth inning to bring the Cardinals back to within three at the time. Molina is now two home runs shy of his career-high 22 that he set back in 2012 and his 74 RBI this season are good for third among all MLB catchers. The 36-year-old is hitting .267/.319/.445 in 120 games this year.

Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Slugs 19th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Molina went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in an extra-inning win over the Giants on Saturday.

The veteran backstop's 402-foot shot to left in the seventh with Jedd Gyorko aboard knotted the game at 4-4, setting the stage for a Tyler O'Neill walkoff blast in the 10th. Molina has heated up some over the last six games, hitting safely in five of them while tallying 10 of his 14 RBI for the month during that stretch.
