On Tuesday, Yadier Molina's agent, Melvin Roman, indicated that his client will not discuss a new contract with the St. Louis Cardinals during the regular season. He also said that he is uncertain about when contract negotions with the club would resume.
"It could be tomorrow. It could be two days. It could be two weeks," Roman said. "If they want us to come back, we'll come back."
Molina has said he'd like to remain in St. Louis, but he's also said he is not interested in giving the team a hometown discount.
Molina is set to earn $7 million in 2012. He's played eight seasons in the majors, all of them with St. Louis.
