Yadier Molina Surgery - Out 8-12 Weeks

The St. Louis Cardinals will most likely finish the 2014 MLB season without All-Star catcher Yadier Molina, who will undergo surgery to repair a torn thumb ligament. Molina has "struggled" this season, hitting .287 with 7 home runs and 30 RBI.  That's good enough for 7th amongst catchers in our ranking system!  The Cincinnati Reds received the same new for 2B Brandon Phillips.
