Yadier Molina placed on injured list

Yadier Molina was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, due to a right thumb tendon strain.

Fantasy Impact

Molina who was battling the thumb injury heading into the All-Star break, will require an injured list stint to allow his thumb to fully heal. He is eligible to come off the injured list July 18. Matt Wieters will handle the bulk of the catching duties until Molina returns.

Yadier Molina: still experiencing thumb discomfort

Yadier Molina (thumb) has been out of the lineup for three games due to thumb discomfort that flares up when he grips or swings a bat.

Fantasy Impact

Molina spent time on the injured list with a thumb sprain in May, and this is an indication that the issue may never have completely healed. Rogers's report suggests that Molina's thumb is preventing him from driving the ball effectively, which seems consistent with the fact that he has only three extra-base hits in the 20 games he's played in since returning from the IL. Molina is likely to sit Sunday, and will take advantage of the All-Star break to hopefully get back to 100 percent for the start of the second half.

Yadier Molina has three-hit day Thursday

Yadier Molina went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in the Cardinals' 7-6 extra innings loss to the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact

This was Molina's first multi-hit game since returning, and he now has a .261 AVG and .292 OBP on the year. He's still a decent option at catcher for the volume, but at age 36 his best days look behind him.
