Molina has Surgery Following Foul Tip to the Groin

Molina responded on Instagram in January with a "respect us" message written in Spanish and a group photo with Posey and Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez.

In the meantime, the catcher is going to miss at least a month. Kelly is hitting just.234 for Triple-A Memphis so far this season, but he's considered a strong defensive catcher and has some big league experience (44 games over the 2016 and 2017 seasons with the Cardinals). They said the eight-time All-Star is projected to miss at least four weeks with what the team called a "pelvic injury with traumatic hematoma".

The pitch from Cardinals pitcher Jordan Hicks was fouled off by Chicago Cubs star Kris Bryant.

Yadier Molina experienced one of the most painful moments of his career on Saturday against the Cubs. In fact, Molina would need surgery following the incident.

President of baseball operations John Mozeliak told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Molina underwent emergency surgery to treat a traumatic hematoma that required immediate attention. The two will share time behind the plate while Molina is out.

"That was a bad one, and those ones don't necessarily felt better (the next day)", St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said after the game.

Molina, 35, is hitting.272 with six home runs and 17 RBI in 30 games. "That's just how he's wired".
