2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: YADIER MOLINA DOWN A MONTH WITH TRAUMATIC GROIN INJURY

                                                             

Yeah every male felt St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina's pain late Saturday as the All-Star took a foul tip to the groin area that required immediate surgery.  As a result, the still top-notch Molina will now miss a month of action and given the pathetic state of catching when it comes to putting up offensive numbers this season, his loss is a humongous one.  Going into the injury, Molina was padding his Hall of Fame resume as he was hitting. 272 with 6 home runs, 17 RBI, and even a stolen base as he shows no falloff anywhere despite the fact he is now 35.  Replacing Molina is almost an impossible task but possible relief options could include from your wavier wire Kurt Suzuki, Mike Zunino, Chris Iannetta, or Francisco Cervelli.  Each can help hold things down for the month but Molina can't return quick enough.
