The Cardinals activate Yadier Molina

6 Comments

A big, big part of the Cardinals is back tonight: Yadier Molina has been activated and is in the lineup.

Molina went 5 for 6 with three doubles in two rehab games, so he’s ready to go. Tonight he’s catching and batting sixth against the Cubs. To make room for him,¬†Tony Cruz was sent down. A.J. Pierzynski will serve as the backup.

Molina’s last game was July 9. At the time he was hitting .287/.341/.409 with seven homers and 30 RBI.
