News: Pierzynski will likely see his playing time dwindle come Friday, when Yadier Molina (thumb) is expected to be activated from the disabled list. Impact: As one of the game's best two-way players, Molina doesn't figure to yield many starts to his backups down the stretch, especially as the Cardinals continue to battle a bevy of teams for a playoff spot. Pierzynski may have to settle for as little as one or no starts per week, and could potentially be headed for an outright release.(RotoWire, )
