Cardinals C Yadier Molina inching back toward .300
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/26/15) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina has lost the power that marked his brilliant three-year stretch from 2011 to 2013, but he hasn't lost the ability to crank out hits.
Molina, who is on pace for just five home runs this season, which would be his lowest output since his rookie year of 2004, is on a tear. He lost his nine-game hitting streak Thursday, but he raised his average from .274 to .298 over that span with two doubles, both of his home runs on the year, and two runs scored.
He has also just fanned once in 40 plate appearances since June 12.
Cardinals C Yadier Molina goes deep in win on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/19/15) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina started the scoring frenzy for St. Louis on Friday night, as they beat the Phillies 12-4. Molina slugged a two-run home run, his second of the year, in the second inning to give his club an early 2-0 lead.
Molina, who also singled, walked and scored later in the game, is batting .361 (13 for 36) over his last 10 games. Both of his longballs this year have come during that span.
Cardinals C Yadier Molina hits first homer of year
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/15/15) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina hit his first home run of the season in Monday night's 3-2 win over the Twins.
Molina finished the game 3 for 4 with two singles. His homer was a solo shot in the fourth inning and followed one hit by Mark Reynolds, who was hitting one spot in front of him. Molina is now hitting .300 over his past 10 games.
For the year, Molina holds a slash line of .287/.332/.349.
Cardinals' Yadier Molina closing in on one year anniversary of last HR
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/10/15) Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts during a 4-3 loss Tuesday at Colorado. More importantly, it was the 54th game he appeared in this season without hitting a home run.
It's been almost a year since the last time Molina hit a home run. His last home run came on June 27, 2014. His homerless streak has reached 92 games, which is the longest drought of his career (per Baseball-Reference.com).
|2014 summary: After three straight years of offense nearly on par with his defense, Yadier Molina took a significant step back in 2014, particularly in terms of power. You can blame the torn thumb ligament if you want, but he slugged only .409 before it happened in early July. And most of that was confined to April, when he hit four of his seven homers and seven of his 22 doubles.|
Playing time status: Molina's surgery was supposed to sideline him for 8-12 weeks, but he came back after seven, which may explain his poor production to close out the season. Or maybe, again, it was just a continuation of what began before it. Eliminating April, his numbers were about the same before and after the procedure.
2015 outlook: A full-timer since age 22, Molina has a lot of mileage on his legs 10 years later and may have begun to decline. But with a shortage of trustworthy bats at catcher, the possibility of a Jimmy Rollins-like resurgence makes him still worth considering among the top-five catchers, particularly in points leagues. Even with the decline in power, his contact rate remained second to none at the position, so you can at least count on him for batting average.
