The St. Louis Cardinals have activated C Tony Cruz (forearm) from the 15-day disabled list to serve as emergency protection behind the plate. However, his baseball activities have been limited to throwing and he hopes to receive clearance to resume swinging a bat Wednesday, Sept. 4, or Thursday, Sept. 5.
Fantasy Tip: Rob Johnson will continue serving as the No. 2 catcher behind Yadier Molina while Cruz's condition improves. Neither Johnson nor Cruz have any fantasy value.

The St. Louis Cardinals are awaiting the result of an MRI on C Yadier Molina (knee) before they estimate a timetable for his return. "I tried to play through it, but it's getting worse," Molina said on Tuesday, July 30. "The smart thing is to take time off and try to fix it. I've been playing through that since June." C's Tony Cruz and Rob Johnson will split duties behind the plate while Molina is sidelined.
Fantasy Tip: Sounds like this move is for the best for Molina, and maybe even for his fantasy owners. Perhaps it would've been even better had it come a month ago. Cruz and Johnson are unlikely to have fantasy value, except perhaps in deep NL-only leagues.
