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.
