St. Louis Cardinals Make Roster Moves On Thursday: Yadier Molina Placed On Injured List

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The Cardinals placed catcher Yadier Molina on the injured list with a strained right thumb and activated infielder Matt Carpenter as part of a series of roster moves

Thursday. St. Louis also brought up left-hander Chasen Shreve from Triple-A Memphis, optioned left-hander Tyler Webb and outfielder Rangel Ravelo to Memphis, and

transferred pitcher Jordan Hicks to the 60-day IL update ahead of their series against Arizona beginning Friday night.

Molina’s move to the IL was retroactive to Monday. The nine-time All-Star, who missed 12 games in May and June with a similar injury, pinch hit on Saturday but hasn’t

started a game since June 3. Carpenter has been sidelined since June 29 with a lower back strain.

Shreve appeared in 20 games for the Cardinals last season, and is 2-1 with a 3.80 ERA in 37 games for Memphis this season. Kinzer made his big league debut June 2,

going 0 for 7 for St. Louis. The Cards will host the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday evening at Busch Stadium. First pitch is set for 7:15 p.m.
