Cardinals C out at least one month after surgery

  • St. Louis Cardinals trainer Chris Conroy left and manager Mike Matheny right attend to catcher Yadier Molina after Molina was injured on a pitch during the ninth inning of a baseball game against the Chicago Cubs Saturday in St. Louis

St. Louis Cardinals fans are hoping a painful injury to star catcher Yadier Molina will not keep the 2-time World Series victor and 8-All Star down for long. Carson Kelly was also recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Being a Major League Baseball catcher is a tough job.

Molina suffered the injury during the Cardinals' victory over the Cubs, which was St. Louis' fourth straight win to open the month of May. "You're always just hoping it's one of those that just takes a couple of minutes, then it's manageable".

The pitch from Cardinals pitcher Jordan Hicks was fouled off by Chicago Cubs star Kris Bryant.

Molina has played at least 136 games and earned an All-Star selection in eight of the last nine seasons, the first of which is quite a feat for a catcher approaching 36 years old (July 13).




Yadier Molina's face tells the story.

The elder Molina visited his brother after he was released from the hospital Sunday morning and was encouraged by how he looked. In fact, Molina would need surgery following the incident. "So, I went over to the door, and when I saw him he was walking".

Molina, 35, is batting.272 with six home runs and 17 RBIs through 30 games this season.

"Really, it's just going to be just take each day as it comes", Mozeliak said. "That was hard to see", adds manager Mike Matheny. "That's just how he's wired".
