Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina was injured in a collision at home plate against the Pirates Tuesday. While X-rays and a SCAT II concussion test showed no serious damage, the All-Star backstop will need time to recover. Tony Cruz is stepping in behind home plate while minor league catcher Bryan Anderson was called up.

Notable quotable

“I’m not worried about it at all because I have good teammates, and they’ll get me ready for going against the defense. As far as conditioning-wise, we have two weeks to the game. I’ve been working out, I’ve been doing really good conditioning, so that’s not really going to be a problem.” – Pittsburgh Steelers WR Mike Wallace on catching up on conditioning after putting an end to his preseason holdout.
