Cardinals | Yadier Molina in extended hot streak

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 13:20:25 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina has a .331 batting average (52-for-157) through 43 games dating back to Tuesday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Molina's ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) solid hitting hasn't translated to his counting stats, as he has just 15 runs, two home runs and 14 RBI during the stretch. He does have six runs, two home runs and four RBI during his current nine-game hitting streak, though. Molina is an excellent mid-range catcher in the majority of seasonal leagues, and he is currently an excellent budget play for FantasyScore contests.

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 20:50:34 -0700

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 13:59:35 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Molina ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) was hitless against the Dodgers on Saturday, June 6, but Clayton Kershaw was pitching for Los Angeles. This just appears to be a normal night off. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) carries no fantasy value despite the low cost.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina receiving day off

Thu, 21 May 2015 08:20:47 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup against the New York Mets Thursday, May 21. C Tony Cruz is batting eighth and starting behind the dish Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Molina ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all formats Thursday, and it is likely a scheduled day of rest after the Cards played a night game Wednesday, May 20. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has received just 28 plate appearances this season, so FantasyScore players should view him as nothing more than a desperation flier behind the plate.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina out against the Cubs

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:25:09 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup against the Chicago Cubs Monday, May 4. C Tony Cruz is batting eighth and starting behind the plate Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Molina in all fantasy formats Monda. This is likely just a routine day off for the backstop. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has just 17 plate appearances this season which have yielded only three hits. Cap relief is his biggest FantasyScore asset, and daily players should aim higher.

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 16:45:08 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina (knee) is in the starting lineup Monday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: Molina ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) will return to the lineup after missing two games because of a knee injury. Molina is a risky option on FantasyScore because of the injury, but owners can consider using him.
