News: Kottaras will catch and bat seventh Saturday against the Dodgers. Impact: Kottaras, who logged a pair of pinch-hit at-bats after being claimed by St. Louis last week, will make his first start for the Cardinals on Saturday. The 31-year-old has some pop and could eventually work himself into a relatively even timeshare behind the plate with Tony Cruz, but Kottaras is just a .215/.325/.414 career hitter and is really just a desperation option in NL-only and very deep two-catcher leagues.(RotoWire, )

Kottaras was batting .286 with three homers and four RBIs in 10 games for Cleveland. (STATS, 5:13pm)

News: Kottaras was claimed by the Cardinals on Friday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. Impact: Kottaras was designated for assignment by the Indians on Monday, and the Cardinals wasted little time in scooping up the veteran to help cushion the loss of Yadier Molina (thumb). Kottaras is likely to earn the majority of reps behind the plate over Tony Cruz due to a better bat. Although the 31-year-old journeyman owns just a .216 career batting average, he collected three long balls over just 21 at-bats in Cleveland this season.(RotoWire, )
