Impact: Molina has caught 12 straight games for the Cardinals to begin the season, but will give way to Tony Cruz behind the plate Monday. Molina is just 2-for-13 with no extra base hits against the Brewers' Matt Garza, which could have played in to Mike Matheny's decision.(RotoWire, )

News: Molina went yard for the third time this season Tuesday, getting the Cards on the board with a solo home run off Homer Bailey in the second inning. He finished the game 3-for-5 and was a triple shy of the cycle. Impact: One of fantasy baseball's most highly desired catchers on draft day, Molina now leads all backstoppers in home runs and RBI with seven. Yes, the season is young, but owners that grabbed him early have enjoyed his productivity thus far. The Cards have one more game against the Reds before opening a series with the Cubs -- a team in which Molina has batted .300 and put up 70 RBI against, more than any other team -- so look for the perennial Gold Glover to continue to gain momentum at the dish.(RotoWire, )

The career .284 hitter should have no trouble raising his batting average in the coming weeks.(RotoWire, )

News: Molina hit his second home run of the season - a sixth-inning solo shot off Francisco Liriano - in helping the Cardinals over the Pirates on Saturday.

The game's top defensive catcher should be in for another solid offensive year.(RotoWire, )
