Player Notes
Yadier Molina (thumb) expects to begin swinging a bat on Wednesday or Thursday.

Advice: Molina has been catching bullpen sessions and taking infield practice for the past week with no issues and now seems to be progressing toward an early-September return. The star catcher has been on the disabled list since July 10 with a torn ligament in his right thumb. A.J. Pierzynski and Tony Cruz are filling in at catcher.

Yadier Molina (thumb) said Friday that he expects to be cleared to swing a bat next week.

Advice: "Can't wait," the catcher said. Molina caught a bullpen session for the second straight day Friday but is still wearing a splint on his surgically-repaired right thumb. The Cardinals are hoping to get him back in a few weeks. In the meantime, A.J. Pierzynski and Tony Cruz will continue to fill in at catcher.

Yadier Molina caught a bullpen session Thursday for the first time since undergoing surgery on his right thumb.

Advice: When Molina tore the ligament in his thumb one month ago, the initial fear was that he could miss the rest of the regular season, but he's already making some encouraging progress. Still, the best-case scenario is that he's a few weeks away. The Cardinals will take it, though.

Yadier Molina had the cast removed from his surgically-repaired right thumb this weekend.

Advice: Molina will still keep a splint on the thumb for a couple more weeks, but he can now begin light baseball-related activities. The thought is that he's about one month from returning to the Cardinals' active roster, assuming he can avoid setbacks. Molina underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb on July 11. A.J. Pierzynski and Tony Cruz are filling in at catcher for St. Louis.
