Yadier Molina needs to be owned again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/19/2014) With the news he's been cleared to swing a bat and will do so within the next couple days, Yadier Molina needs to be added in virtually all of the 38 percent of leagues where he was dropped in early July, when the world learned he needed thumb surgery.

At the time, he was expected to miss 8-12 weeks, but as I mentioned in my latest Rankings Review, where I touch on several of the changes I made to my-rest-of-season rankings, swinging a bat would seem to the biggest hurdle following surgery on his thumb. The Cardinals are fighting for their lives right now, caught in a tight battle for both the NL Central title and the wild card, so they'd like to have him back as soon as possible.

Besides, the surgery was nearly six weeks ago, so even if his return is still two weeks away, a player of his caliber is worth that sort of wait.

Molina was in a deep funk at the time of his injury and still ranked sixth among catchers in Head-to-Head points leagues and ninth in Rotisserie. He ranked fourth and first in those formats a year ago.


Hector Sanchez diagnosed with second concussion


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Giants catcher Hector Sanchez has been diagnosed with a second concussion, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Sanchez will be out indefinitely following the revelation of a second concussion, and manager Bruce Bochy said there's a chance his season is over. The catcher has hit .196/.237/.301 with three home runs and 28 RBI in 163 at-bats.


Yadier Molina could begin swinging in next two days


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina continues to make progress in his recovery from a thumb injury, and told FOXSportsMidwest.com he expects to be cleared to swing a bat for the first time either Wednesday or Thursday.

Molina has been out since July 9 as a result of the injury, and is still aiming for a September return. 


Christian Bethancourt hits Triple-A DL


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Braves catching prospect Christian Bethancourt has been placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Gwinnett, due to a left hand contusion. Bethancourt is hitting .268/.292/.393 in 313 at-bats at Gwinnett, and shouldn't be out long. 

Wilson Ramos hits sixth home run Monday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos hit his sixth home run Monday against the Diamondbacks.

Reds activate pitcher from DL, option two to minors

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Yasmani Grandal cranks out pinch-hit homer in Friday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal certainly made the most of his one crack at the dish Friday night against St. Louis. He slammed a pinch-hit homer in the ninth inning off closer-for-the-game Pat Neshek.

Evan Gattis blasts off Friday for first time in three weeks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
