Player Notes
Yadier Molina hit his first home run of the season, a two-run shot, in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Advice: Molina has surprised everyone by hitting for a very good average and on-base percentage this season despite concerns about his thumb, but the power has been steadily dropping each of the last four years. He's still got enough juice to muscle it out every once in a while, though, and his .427 slugging percentage would actually be his highest since 2013 if the season ended today. Molina has 18 RBI and 16 runs scored to go with a .313/.394/.427 line.

Sat, May 21 Rotoworld
Yadier Molina came through with a pinch-hit two-run double in the seventh inning on Sunday, propelling the Cardinals to a 5-2 victory over the Dodgers.

Advice: The game was knotted in a 1-1 tie with two outs in the seventh inning when Molina was called upon to hit for Mike Leake. He lined the second pitch that he saw from Joe Blanton into left field for the go-ahead two-run double. Molina also came around to score in the inning. He's now hitting a robust .333/.413/.439 with 16 RBI in a resurgent offensive season.

Sun, May 15 Rotoworld
Yadier Molina is not in the Cardinals starting lineup for Sunday night's contest against the Dodgers.

Advice: Just a routine day of rest for the veteran backstop, though you would have expected him to be in there for a prime time game on national television. Eric Fryer will start behind the dish for the Cardinals and bat eighth against Alex Wood and the Dodgers.
