Yadier Molina sprained his right thumb last night sliding into first according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He will be getting an x-ray on Friday in St. Louis

CardsBlog Editor Steve Hirsch: Yikes…let’s hope everything is all right. Obviously Yadi has been an integral part of this lineup all season long and this is not an ideal time for something to happen to him.

In 91 games this season, Molina is hitting .310 with 16 home runs and 52 RBIs.
