News: The Cardinals designated Kottaras for assignment Saturday. Impact: A waiver acquisition from the Indians just before the All-Star break, Kottaras went 1-for-5 with an RBI and two strikeouts in four games with the Cardinals. The team found itself an upgrade in A.J. Pierzynski, who will likely serve as the primary option behind the plate while Yadier Molina (thumb) is on the DL.(RotoWire, )

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, )
