Cards catcher Molina will try to play with splint over thumb

ST. LOUIS (AP) – St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina will try to play in the NL division series wearing a splint to protect his injured left thumb.

The All-Star catcher met with a hand specialist on Monday and it was determined that a ligament injury hasn’t healed. He’ll test the splint in workouts the next few days.

Molina was hurt on Sept. 20 making a tag at the plate and hasn’t played since then.

General manager John Mozeliak said Molina was feeling stronger and added he was optimistic the 33-year-old would be on the postseason roster.

Backup Tony Cruz would be the starter if Molina is unable to play.

The Cardinals on Friday night will host the winner of the wild-card game between the Cubs and Pirates.
