Yadier Molina doubles and homers in win Tuesday

Yadier Molina went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a double in the Cardinals' 14-3 win over the Braves on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Molina's picked things up in April, and raised his AVG to .286 after this performance. He is one of the top fantasy catchers and deserves to be started every week.

Yadier Molina scores three times in win Thursday

Yadier Molina went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI, and three runs scored in the Cardinals' 17-4 win over the Pirates on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Molina has been heating up lately, and this is his second three-hit game over his last four contests. He's now hitting .289 on the season, though his .148 ISO is a little disappointing. It's hard to be too disappointed with Molina, since he's one of the best hitting catchers even without much power. He also plays nearly every day, so he makes up for a lack of power with volume. He's one of the most reliable fantasy catchers in the game today.

Yadier Molina homers in win Monday

Yadier Molina went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Cardinals' 6-0 win over the Phillies on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Molina broke a few droughts in this game, hitting his first homer since April 24, and recording his first multi-hit game since April 23. He's now hitting .278 with a .727 OPS on the season. His .143 ISO leaves something to be desired, but Molina is still one of the better options at catcher even with diminished power.

Yadier Molina singes in loss Friday

Yadier Molina went 1-for-3 with a single in the Cardinals' 4-0 loss to the Cubs on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Molina has been quiet over the past ten days. He had a five game hit streak over that stretch, but he didn't have a multi-hit game or an extra-base hit during that stretch. He's still a startable fantasy catcher, but one has to wonder if Molina's power is fading at age 36.

Yadier Molina drives in three Sunday

Yadier Molina went 1-for-3 with a single and three RBI in the Cardinals' 5-2 win over the Reds on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Molina drove one in on a sac fly, and delivered a two run single later in the game. He'd gotten off to a slow start, but Molina now has a .267 AVG and 19 RBI on the year. That's above average for a catcher, and his .269 BABIP suggests positive regression could be coming for Molina.
