The St. Louis Cardinals announced Friday that catcher Yadier Molina has been placed on MLB's bereavement list. St. Louis has called up Bryan Anderson from triple-A Memphis to help fill in while Molina is away from the club.
Thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Yadier Molina, who is returning to Puerto Rico due to the death of his wife's grandfather.— B.J. Rains (@BJRains) July 6, 2012
The 25-year-old Anderson is hitting .210/.295/.272 with eight doubles, two home runs and 21 RBI in 64 games with Memphis. He played in 15 games for the Cardinals back in 2010.
