|Yadier Molina plates three in home opener |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/7/14) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina came up big again on Monday against Tony Cingrani and the Reds.
Molina ripped a bases-clearing double off Cingrani in the opening frame, giving his club an early 3-0 advantage. He finished 1 for 4 with three RBI in a 5-3 victory. He is hitting .222 (6 for 27) with two home runs and six RBI in seven games.
|With three straight years of plus offensive production, Yadier Molina is now firmly among the elite at the catcher position. Of course, that's speaking strictly in terms of Fantasy value. In real life, he had been there for years because of his defensive ability. It's that defensive ability that keeps him in the lineup when other catchers might take a day off, allowing him to rack up doubles and RBI in lieu of a bunch of homers. He doesn't have the pure power of a Buster Posey or Carlos Santana, but he has no real weaknesses in his game either. And apart from Joe Mauer, who's moving to first base full-time this season, he might be the only lock for a .300 batting average among catcher-eligible players. Because he's so invested on defense, Molina will always be an injury risk, especially as he enters his mid-30s, but because he tends to go off the board a couple rounds after the other elite types at the position, he's still a safe choice as your top catcher.
