St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina (knee) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 26. C Tony Cruz will be the starting catcher for the Cardinals.
Fantasy Tip: Molina ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is considered day-to-day, so owners should look for any updates in the next day or two. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone 2-for-9 in his limited at-bats this season and could be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.
