Yadier Molina finds free agency intriguing, will not negotiate during season

Could Yadier Molina be entering his final season as a St. Louis Cardinal?

The All-Star catcher, who is entering the final guaranteed year of his current contract, admitted Saturday that the thought of going into free agency intrigues him, and he expects to be paid on par with the highest-paid catchers in baseball. He also said that he won’t negotiate with the Cardinals once the regular season kicks off.

Molina turns 35 in July, and at such a physically demanding position, a huge investment would be risky at this stage of his career. He did hit .307 in 2016, though he threw out just 21 percent of would-be basestealers, a career-worst mark. He can still do this, though. St. Louis will have a difficult decision to make.
