Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:04:50 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Molina ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .177 in limited playing time this season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina produces in cleanup

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 22:35:39 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina batted cleanup for the first time this season against the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, Aug. 19. He finished 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Molina ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) outproduced his FantasyScore salary, and he could be a solid short-term option if he continues to see time in the No. 4 spot of manager Mike Matheny's batting order.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina drives in three

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 19:51:16 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina went 1-for-2 with three RBI and a walk in a 10-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Molina ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has at least one RBI in three straight games after going 15 games without an RBI. His batting average still sits at a respectable .283 for the year, and while he doesn't have a ton of upsude, he is a solid catching option for the price at FantasyScore most nights.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina triples in victory

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 04:52:49 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina had a run-scoring triple Wednesday, Aug. 12, in his team's 4-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Molina ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) may have lost some spark on his bat in recent years, but this is a prime example of why he should be trusted in FantasyScore. He won't score you too many runs, but he's still a solid option against right-handed pitching.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina out of the lineup

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 08:43:42 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 9. C Tony Cruz is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Molina ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. While he has a .270 batting average over his past 20 games, Molina has just two runs and six RBI to show for it. You likely can do better in the majority of seasonal leagues. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a fantasy afterthought and should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Sunday.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina resting

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 07:48:07 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is out of the lineup Thursday, Aug. 6, with 2B Kolten Wong moving up to hit fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Wong ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is in a 1-for-16 (.063) slump this month, but he has a decent matchup against Michael Lorenzen. He's a risky midrange buy on FantasyScore.
