  • Yadier Molina said Monday that he plans to retire after his contract runs out following the 2020 season.<p><b>Advice</b>: The three-year, $60 million contract extension Molina signed just before Opening Day last season begins this year. He will be 38 when that deal runs out, so it's not a surprise that he plans to hang up his cleats at that point. Molina has remained a workhorse behind the plate even in his mid-30s and is coming off a solid offensive season that saw him bat .273/.312/.439 with 18 homers and 82 RBI. Carson Kelly will be Yadi's backup this season and the Cardinals could steadily increase his playing time during the course of Molina's deal.</p><p><b>More</b>: <a href="https://twitter.com/dgoold/status/953011713993035778">Derrick Goold on Twitter</a></p>
