Catcher Yadier Molina has left the Cardinals Saturday night game against the Rockies at Coors Field.
He was injured with what is described as a bruised knee and is considered to be day-to-day.
St. Louis, fortunately, has a third catcher with the big club now that the Class AAA playoffs are over. Matt Pagnozzi, nephew of former Cardinals receiver Tom Pagnozzi, is providing a little bit of extra insurance while Jason LaRue has moved up to the starting slot until Yadi gets back.
