Yadier Molina Injury Could Cost Cardinals Four Wins

The St. Louis Cardinals won at least 86 games each season from 2008 through last year. They haven't made the playoffs every season, but they've been competitive every season. The one constant in those years, of course, has been All-Star catcher Yadier Molina. He's now out 8-12 weeks with a thumb injury that will require surgery.

Michael Wacha's Scans Encouraging But Will Remain Shut Down For Two More Weeks

Michael Wacha’s first mile marker on his road to recovery came and went Monday morning, with a second set of exams to determine how his shoulder injury has responded to treatment.

Prized righthander Michael Wacha had an MRI today on his right shoulder and the site of a stress reaction on his scapula. While the scan revealed continued healing of the potential fracture, the Cardinals and their doctors have sided with caution over advancement.
