Yadier Molina Working on a Contract Extension

The St. Louis Cardinals and catcher Yadier Molina are reportedly working on a contract extension. The lifelong Cardinal is looking for a deal that would keep him signed through the 2022 season. Molina has declined offensively, but he's still solid with the bat in a very limited offensive position, and pitchers love throwing to the veteran backstop. It seems more a matter of when than if in terms of the two sides agreeing to an extension. Catching prospect Andrew Knizner, meanwhile, may end up as a trade chip if Molina sticks around long term.

Yadier Molina Gets a Hit on Monday

St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina went 1-for-3 in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Miami Marlins. Molina hit a single and had his three at bats before being replaced by Andrew Knizner behind the plate. Molina is hitting .200 through three games, and despite his fairly low upside, he should still be fantasy relevant due to the lack of depth at the catching position. Molina slashed .270/.312/.399 last season with 10 home runs and 57 RBI in 113 games. With a healthier season, Molina should be able to improve on those numbers this season.

Yadier Molina Wants To Play Beyond 2020

St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina said he hopes to play beyond the 2020 season, perhaps for two more years. However, he only wants to continue playing for the Cardinals, so if they don't want him back after the 2020 season, he will retire. The 37-year-old Molina played in just 113 games (his fewest since 2014) and hit .270 with 10 home runs, 57 RBI and six stolen bases. The power production saw a substantial dip after he had clubbed a combined 38 long balls the previous two seasons. Molina remains a solid defensive backstop, but you won't be able to count on him with the stick moving forward in single-catcher leagues. The future Hall of Famer is a nine-time All-Star and nine-time Gold Glover, but age and health are becoming question marks as he nears the end of his career.
