Manager Mike Matheny said the knee began bothering Molina on Friday night. Molina has played in 81 of St. Yadier Molina and the Cardinals believe they have dodged a substantial setback, as an MRI exam taken on Molina's bothersome right knee revealed no structural damage. Molina learned on Saturday that he had beaten out San Francisco's Buster Posey in a close fan vote, and that he had finished with more votes than any other player in the league. St. He said the knee had been bothering him for a month but felt worse Friday, especially when he ran, "so that scared me." "Yeah, it's definitely something that's worrisome, such a valuable piece of our team," manager Mike Matheny said.
