  • Yadier Molina went 4-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in a loss to the Cubs on Thursday.
    Advice: New Cardinals manager Mike Shildt has shown confidence in Molina's bat, hitting him second in both of his lineups thus far, and Molina rewarded that confidence Thursday in providing a team-high four hits, as the Cards racked up 15 hits in all. The good night upped his line to .285/.324/.485 through 65 games. It's not a huge move, but the new lineup spot, should it stick, ought to provide a few more counting stats for the 36-year-old's owners.
  • Yadier Molina (shoulder) drew a walk and scored a run in his return to the Cardinals' lineup Tuesday versus the White Sox.
    Advice: Molina missed a couple of games out in San Francisco with a sore right shoulder. The 35-year-old backstop has posted a remarkable .806 OPS with 13 home runs, 39 RBI, and 26 runs scored in 60 games this season. He's headed to his ninth All-Star Game next week.
