    Yadier Molina exited today’s game against the Reds in the fourth inning with what the Cardinals announced left wrist soreness. Molina, who spent two weeks on the disabled list with a knee injury last month, was previously bothered by wrist problems during the World Baseball Classic this spring.

    As first relayed by Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals have activated backup catcher Tony Cruz from the 15-day disabled list.

    Promising news here for the second-place Cardinals. According to MLB.com’s Jenifer Langosch, an MRI taken Wednesday on the sore right knee of catcher Yadier Molina showed inflammation but no structural damage.

    As first reported by MLB.com’s Jenifer Langosch, the Cardinals have placed catcher Yadier Molina on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right knee. Molina has been dealing with the knee injury since early July and he aggravated it on Tuesday night in St. Louis’ 6-0 loss at Pittsburgh’s PNC Park. Shane Robinson has also been…

    Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina made an early exit from Tuesday night’s 6-0 loss to the Pirates with what is being labeled a right knee sprain. He is back in St. Louis on Wednesday for an MRI, which is expected to yield a more exact diagnosis. It’s probably safe to assume the injury is serious. According…

    The biggest series in PNC Park history is off to a promising start. For the home team, that is. The Cardinals entered the five-game set with a 1 1/2-game lead over the Pirates in the National League Central standings and are now 1 1/2 games back after three straight losses. But wait. There’s more. According…

  7. The Cardinals give a player the number 32 for the first time since Josh Hancock’s death

    Feb 7, 2013, 6:19 AM EDT

    Josh Hancock

    Derrick Goold reports that the Cardinals have issued number 32 to a player for the first time since 2007.  The player who has it: catcher Rob Johnson. The last player to wear it: Josh Hancock, who was killed in an auto accident in April of that year. Hancock, you’ll recall, was intoxicated, texting and driving…

    Josh Thole is back from the disabled list, returning to the Mets after missing the past 22 games with a concussion from a home plate collision on May 7. To make room for Thole on the roster the Mets demoted Rob Johnson to Triple-A, choosing to stick with Mike Nickeas as their backup despite his…

  9. The Mets haven’t ruled out signing Ivan Rodriguez…or have they?

    Feb 28, 2012, 7:50 PM EDT

    Ivan Rodriguez

    UPDATE: Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com was told by multiple Mets’ sources that a deal with Rodriguez is unlikely. In fact, one source told him: “We are not bringing Ivan here.” The club appears content to go with Mike Nickeas or Rob Johnson as Josh Thole‘s backup. 6:48 PM: 40-year-old Ivan Rodriguez is still out there…

  10. Running down the rosters: New York Mets

    Jason Bay, David Wright

    As depressing as all things Mets have been lately, the team on the field still finished a respectable 77-85 last season. Unfortunately, it seems likely that things will get worse before they get better. Rotation Johan Santana – L R.A. Dickey – R Mike Pelfrey – R Jon Niese – L Dillon Gee – R…

    Some people might say this is a slow news day, but I beg to differ because the Mets have signed catcher Rob Johnson to a minor-league contract. Johnson figures to compete with Mike Nickeas for the job backing up starter Josh Thole. Johnson spent the first seven years of his pro career with the Mariners…

    Designated for assignment by the Mariners last week, Rob Johnson has been traded to the Padres for a player to be named later or cash. Presumably something like $1.75. Johnson hit .200 with a .282 on-base percentage and .302 slugging percentage in 534 plate appearances for the Mariners, which adds up to a .584 OPS…

  13. Mariners designate catcher Rob Johnson for assignment

    rob-johnson-mariners

    Seattle has mercifully designated Rob Johnson for assignment after giving the 27-year-old catcher a total of 499 plate appearances during the past two seasons despite hitting a combined .204 with a .291 on-base percentage and .307 slugging percentage. And unlike most catchers who get significant playing time despite not being able to hit, Johnson wasn’t…
