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 dialed in

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 19:06:39 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina has 12 hits and six RBIs over his last seven games, raising his average from .143 and .306 over the stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Molina ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) received the day off Thursday, April 23, and he should be refreshed for a matchup with the Brewers Friday. Matt Garza will be on the mound for Milwaukee, and he is allowing opponents to hit .300 this season. Molina should make a safe, solid option at the catcher spot at FantasyScore.

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.
