Player Notes
Yadier Molina went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

Advice: Molina hit a ground-rule double in the eighth inning, coming in to score on a wild pitch. As he continues to distance himself from his thumb injury, Molina's hitting continues to improve -- he's got a five-game hitting streak in which he's 8-for-17 with two doubles, an RBI and two runs scored. The catcher is hitting .287/.343/.395 overall.

Sat, Sep 20 Rotoworld
Yadier Molina connected for an RBI double in Friday's win over the Rockies.

Advice: The eighth-inning double was his first extra-base hit since returning from the disabled list. It's a good sign, but Cardinals manager Mike Matheny indicated Thursday that Molina's thumb is not yet 100 percent. Fantasy owners might have better options for the final two weeks of the regular season.

Sun, Sep 14 Rotoworld
Cardinals manager Mike Matheny conceded Thursday that Yadier Molina's surgically-repaired right thumb is still affecting the catcher.

Advice: "You can see the splint," Matheny said. "He's still protecting it and doing things to strengthen it." Molina is hitting just .234/.315/.234 with no extra-base hits since returning from the disabled list and took some awkward swings on Wednesday before getting the day off Thursday. He could round into shape by the end of the month, but fantasy owners might be better off using someone else for the time being, if possible.

Yadier Molina is not in the Cardinals' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon versus the Reds.

Advice: It's just routine day of maintenance for the All-Star catcher, who is batting .234 with a .549 OPS since returning in late August from a torn thumb ligament. He had a very short rehab assignment and is obviously still trying to find his timing. A.J. Pierzynski will start at catcher in the series finale in Cincy.
