News 
  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 
 Smith could be a Top 5 catcher in 2021 if he can tap into the production that he had in the minors. The March reports of him being in a timeshare are slightly concerning.
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
 Smith was among the biggest surprises last season, knocking 15 homers and 42 RBIs in just 170 at-bats. That's a full-season pace of 40 homers and a 120 RBIs. Granted, that won't happen, but the upside is clearly there for a special season. You'll have to decide if the hefty ADP is worth the risk.
