The St. Louis Cardinals intend to take time to research the market for a catcher, after losing C Yadier Molina (thumb) for an extended period of time. They do not need to make a move before the All-Star break. Seattle Mariners C John Buck could be a trade target.
Fantasy Tip: Buck has always been a solid source of power, but he struggles to hit for average. He would be worth an addition in NL-only leagues; if he joins the Cardinals. A.J. Pierzynski could also be an option for the Cardinals, as he was recently demoted by the Boston Red Sox. Pierzynski would also be a solid NL-only target, if he joined St. Louis.

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 11:02:02 -0700
Boston Red Sox C A.J. Pierzynski will be designated for assignment, according to sources.
Fantasy Tip: Pierzynski was in the midst of a pretty bad slump and only had four homers on the year. David Ross is the only other catcher on the active roster, so he should be expected to see the bulk of the work in the meantime. Ross is merely an AL-only commodity, at best.
