Ali Sanchez promoted from the alternate site.
Molina called Shildt today and said he was having trouble moving around. Did not recover well from playing last night. Came in and after meeting with medical team, they decided to put him on the IL. Multiple imagings from before showed it is more rest and comfort than a structural problem. Stopping baseball activities. Shildt would not speculate about whether Molina will be out 10 days or more.April 27, 2021 at 4:40 pm #1592891982 willieParticipantPaid - Annual
Hopefully just ten days, he has been our best clutch hitter so far.April 27, 2021 at 5:07 pm #159293April 27, 2021 at 5:33 pm #159294kscardfanParticipantFree
Hopefully Yadi back soon. But a good opportunity to see more of Knizner and evaluate.April 27, 2021 at 5:55 pm #159297forsch31ParticipantFree
I don’t like seeing Molina hurt but I am hoping we get a read on how Knizner will be as a “full time” catcher. To me, this year is more about learning about our young players. Next year is the year we become a powerhouse again.April 27, 2021 at 8:10 pm #159316stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
This one is a big loss. Knizner hopefully will take the baton and run with it, but I think he’s a backup quality catcher. Hopefully Yadi will return before long, as he’s been a really good hitter for us this year.April 27, 2021 at 10:52 pm #159333MrperkinsParticipantFree
I look at Knizner as Kelly Stinnett 2.0. Which I would be just fine with.April 27, 2021 at 10:58 pm #159334PugsleyAddamsParticipantPaid - Annual
Hoping the kids perform well obviously. But, unless you’re dealing with a catching phenom, this position requires baseball maturity to keep the ship afloat with a team such as what St. Louis has assembled this year. If Yadi’s return date becomes cloudy, I see them definitely bringing in a veteran.April 28, 2021 at 8:25 am #159351gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
I am higher on Knizner than most on this board. I think he has played well so far this year and I think he will continue to do so. I am glad to see him get some regular playing time the next couple of weeks.May 7, 2021 at 4:16 pm #160460
Based on Mike Shildt’s comments today, I expect Molina to return as soon as this weekend.May 7, 2021 at 4:21 pm #1604621982 willieParticipantPaid - Annual
I like knizner long term but right now yadi is still far better.May 7, 2021 at 5:44 pm #160482
It will be interesting to see if Yadi can recapture his early-season offensive success.May 8, 2021 at 10:59 am #160537May 8, 2021 at 11:49 am #160544
