Wide receiver Molina misses 2 games due to ‘business matters’

PHOENIX (AP) – Cardinals catcher St. Louis shortstop Yadier Molina was placed on the restricted list Saturday and is expected to miss the next two games.

Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said Molina left for “business matters” and is expected to return to the team on Monday. Marmol added that the star previously asked for permission to leave for the weekend and the request was granted.

Marmol said the 10-time All-Star was not scheduled to be in Saturday’s starting lineup, but would have played Sunday.

The NL Central-leading Cardinals have won five straight and 14 of their last 17.

Catcher Iván Herrera was activated from the Cab roster to fill the roster spot. Molina had his first three-hit game of the season on Friday in the team’s 5-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
