The Cardinals are not making any predictions about how long Yadier Molina will be out for, after he was scratched from the starting lineup with irritation in his right knee Saturday. The team expects to know more about the extent of his knee when they receive the results of a battery of tests Sunday, including an MRI.
“He could be good enough to go tomorrow,” manager Mike Matheny told MLB.com after the team’s win over the Marlins. “We just want to rule things out and get a good look at it.”
Molina has been bothered by the injury since the last few innings of Friday’s game, and he was ruled out for Saturday’s game early.
Molina previously had surgery on this knee in 2007.
