Yesterday Yadier Molina hit off a tee for the first time this spring. It was thought that, within a week or so, he’d play in a game. Would you believe a day? At least sort of.
Molina is listed ninth in the batting order for today’s game against the Marlins. He will catch but will be pinch-hit for when his turn comes up in the order. Still, being in an actual game situation and catching will help him get on track for Opening Day.
