Yadier Molina will not be on next Tuesday’s All Star team after being placed on the Cardinals’ bereavement list.
Molina’s wife’s grandmother passed away earlier today in Puerto Rico and his family has left to be with family. The Cardinals have called up Bryan Anderson from Memphis to fill Molina’s spot on the roster.
Filling Yadi’s spot on the All-Star roster will be fellow Cardinals slugger, Matt Holliday. This is the 6th All-Star appearance for Holliday and his 3rd with the Cardinals (6th in 7 years).
