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.
