Yadier Molina went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and an RBI in a loss to the Indians on Wednesday.
Molina drove in Dylan Carlson with a two-out single to centerfielder in the first inning. The veteran backstop has slumped tremendously over the past two months since a hot start to the season. Molina is now hitting just .250 on the season with a lackluster .679 OPS. He's a borderline option in fantasy leagues at a shallow catcher position. There are likely better options available, depending on the league size and format.
Yadier Molina went 1-for-5 with a game-winning RBI double in the bottom of the 10th inning to propel the Cardinals to a 3-2 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.

After a hot start to the season, Molina has come crashing back down to Earth in the past couple of months, but the 39-year-old veteran still has a flare for the dramatic and clutch hitting.
