The Puerto Rico native has spent his entire career with the Cardinals. He made his MLB debut during the 2004 season.

During his playing career, he has been a nine-time All-Star. Plus, he has been apart of two Cardinals teams that won the World Series.

Recently, he represented Puerto Rico in the Caribbean Series. That ended on Sunday.

There was some speculation that other teams were interested in Molina. However, he ultimately decided to return to St. Louis.

He has not produced offensively the last two seasons. Yet, he has still been an every day catcher.

Molina has appeared in 2,025 games in his career. This past season, he appeared in 42 games during the 60-game MLB coronavirus schedule.

He has a career .281 batting average with 160 home runs and 932 RBI’s in the aforementioned 2,025 games. He has had 2,001 hits in his career, including 381 doubles and seven triples in 7,115 at-bats.
