Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina will miss the remainder of the regular season with a thumb injury.
Matheny says Molina will rest and see a doctor again next week regarding the injury.
As the Cardinals’ starting catcher since 2005, Molina has been selected to seven consecutive All-Star teams. He is batting .270 with four home runs, 61 RBIs and a .660 OPS this season.
St. Louis begins a pivotal three-game series on the road against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday. With six regular season games remaining, the Cardinals lead the Pirates by three games for first place in the National League Central.
