Cardinals | Yadier Molina coming alive

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 07:31:55 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina has five hits in his last two games after starting the season 3-for-21. Molina is 5-for-9 (.556) with runners in scoring position thus far.

Fantasy Tip: The 32-year-old has caught a ton of innings the last five years, and he probably won't repeat his .315-22-76 season in 2012. However, Molina ($4,500, 9.0% of your cap) is a daily consideration as a midrange catcher on FantasyScore. He has a tough matchup today against Johnny Cueto, whom he has hit .265 in 34 at-bats in his career.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina has lost weight

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 10:38:24 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina has lost more than 20 pounds this spring, and he's already doing catching workouts. Molina typically eases into work behind the plate during spring training. He's already caught multiple bullpen sessions this spring.

Fantasy Tip: The weight loss should make owners worry less about Molina's oblique injury that hampered him in the playoffs last year. The extra early work he's doing this year is an indication that he's fully healthy. You should have no worries about drafting Molina as your No. 1 fantasy catcher in 2015.

Cardinals | Yadier working with Carlos Martinez

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 10:34:31 -0800

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina, who normally doesn't catch much in the early weeks of spring training, caught a bullpen session of SP Carlos Martinez Wednesday, Feb. 18. Molina offered suggestions to Martinez's mechanics after the session.

Fantasy Tip: This is an important development for Martinez and the Cardinals. Molina changing up his routine suggests the team is investing plenty in the development of Martinez as a starting pitcher this year. Even though he's yet to win a rotation spot, Martinez is a worthy gamble in the later rounds of your mixed league drafts to round out your rotation depth.
