Yadier Molina collects two hits Sunday

Yadier Molina was 2-for-4 Sunday collecting two singles as well as scoring twice.

Fantasy Impact

Molina's hit very well this season for the Cardinals and has shown good power. He hasn't hit for this much power since 2012. Unfortunately its been at the expense of his OBP. None the less he's still worth owning at a weak position. He's been getting more and more rest because he's getting older, but what else would you expect from a 35 year old catcher?

Yadier Molina homers twice in Wednesday win

Yadier Molina had a big night at the plate in Wednesday night's win over the Brewers, going 3-for-4 with two solo home runs and a double. Molina scored two runs and collected two RBIs with the two home runs.

Fantasy Impact

The two homers were his 11th and 12th of the season which is tied for 4th in the NL. Molina has been red hot lately, batting .342 with a .938 OPS over the past two weeks. Molina will look to keep it going against Matt Garza and the Brewers on Thursday.

Yadier Molina drives in a run in loss

Yadier Molina finished 1-for-4 with an RBI single in the Cardinals' 3-2 loss to the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact

Yadi slapped a single to right plating Tommy Pham in what was a low-scoring affair for both teams. The ever-steady backstop stud has been his usual reliable self as he's delivered a solid .271/.303/.404 line to go with 10 home runs (reaching double digits for the first time since 2013) and 45 RBIs. You can do much worse at catcher in most formats.

Yadier Molina getting day off on Thursday

Yadier Molina is out of the starting lineup for the Cardinals matchup with the Diamondbacks on Thursday night. Carson Kelly will get the start behind the plate and bat seventh.

Fantasy Impact

Just a day off for Molina who has started five straight games behind the plate for the Cardinals. With multiple hits in three straight games, the Cardinals will miss his bat in the lineup.

Yadier Molina collects a pair of hits in Cardinals' win

Yadier Molina went 2-for-4 at the plate on Monday during the Cardinals' 8-2 victory over the Rockies. He also scored a run and stole his sixth base of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Molina is putting together another solid season behind the plate for the Cardinals and his fantasy owners. His 10 home runs and six steals are his highest marks in those categories since his prime years of 2012 and 2013. While his average has taken a little bit of a dip (.269) it is still solid for the catching position. Continue to roster the 35-year-old catcher in all two-catcher leagues.
