News 
 Carson Kelly went 1-for-2 with a walk, a double, an RBI, and two runs scored Friday against the Rockies.
Connor Rooney
Sat, Mar 7th
Yadier Molina told ESPN's Marly Rivera that he would be willing to test the free agent market this off-season if an extension with the Cardinals doesn't work out.

Notes 
 Kelly is a popular sleeper at catcher, but I'd like to see his splits even out a bit before fully buying in.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Yadi isn't likely to knock 20 homers again at this point in his career, but he is a safe source of batting average and also provides a handful of steals every year as well. While he is healthy, batting in the middle of the lineup should provide plenty of RBIs and runs for fantasy owners too.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Kelly was on a roll last season before his injury but still managed to power up for 18 homers in just 314 at-bats. The batting average may end up below .240 but with a full season, 30 homers isn't out of the question for the youngster.
