Molina signed his three-year deal prior to the 2017 season, and it appears he was well aware at the time that he was signing his final deal as a player. Though he turned 35 last July, he remains quite productive for St. Louis, having hit .273 with 18 home runs — the second-highest tally of his career — in the 2017 season.
