St. Louis Cardinals' Yadier Molina (knee) placed on IL

St. Louis Cardinals veteran catcher Yadier Molina has been placed on the 10-day injured list as he deals with right knee inflammation, the team announced Friday.

According to a report in The Athletic on Thursday, the Cardinals are bracing for Molina to miss "at least a few weeks."

To take his place on the active roster, rookie catcher Ivan Herrera was recalled from Triple-A Memphis.

The 39-year-old Molina is batting .213 with two home runs and 10 RBIs in 38 games in what likely will be his final big league season.
