Yadi’s back!

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Yadier Molina has often been called an Iron Man due to his long history of not missing many games, especially as a catcher. Earlier in the season he was one of the initial players to test positive for COVIE-19 when the Cardinals first reported their outbreak. COVID-19 has range of symptoms and severity, last weeks to months, as many people know. After going on the Injured List on August 4, Yadier Molina has reportedly recovered from the virus and could be ready to play as early as Thursday. Per Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post Dispatch:

It goes without saying, but it is certainly happy news to hear that Yadier Molina has recovered, along with shortstop Paul DeJong, pitcher Carlos Martínez, infielders Edmundo Sosa and Rangel Ravelo, and reliever Kodi Whitley. Less importantly, but still good, the return of these players should likely bring a jolt to the club that sits at 6-7 and has to play all the games in less of the days. Finally: some good news all around for everyone!
