ST. LOUIS, MO (KFVS) -

The St. Louis Cardinals announced on Monday afternoon, Oct. 5 that All-Star catcher Yadier Molina was seen by a hand specialist.

They say Molina had his left thumb examined by a St. Louis-based hand specialist and it was determined that the injury to the ligament is still present, but Molina will have a splint built to try to allow for him to both hit and catch.

Molina will test his abilities with the splint over the next few days.

As of Monday, Molina is said to be feeling stronger.

"We are still optimistic that Yadier will be on our postseason roster," Cardinals Senior V.P./General Manager John Mozeliak said.
