Cardinals C Yadier Molina placed on bereavement list

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals put star catcher Yadier Molina on the mourning list on Monday.
The Cardinals also announced that right-hander Alex Reyes is scheduled for shoulder surgery later this month.
Reyes, 27, met with Dr. Neal El Attrache in Los Angeles. He wanted a second opinion on his ailing shoulder, which has kept him on the injured list all season.
The move with the veteran catcher comes a day after Molina made his first career pitching appearance, working the ninth inning of an 18-4 win in Pittsburgh. He allowed a pair of home runs and four runs while finishing the Cardinals' three-game sweep.
The 39-year-old Molina is hitting .239 with two homers and eight RBIs in 26 games in what will likely be his last season in the big league.
Molina's son injured his arm playing baseball in Puerto Rico and will have surgery Tuesday morning.
Rookie catcher Iván Herrera was recalled from Triple-A Memphis. One of the organization's top talents, 21-year-old Herrera is looking for his big league debut.
Reyes was shut down this month after suffering renewed shoulder pain.
Reyes has struggled with injuries for several years. Tommy John's surgery in 2017 cost Reyes the most time on the injured list, but his shoulder has also been a constant cause for concern in recent years.

From 2016 to 2020, Reyes only threw 72 2/3 innings. He was named a full-time reliever last year and posted a 2.48 ERA in 72 1/3 innings.
Reyes converted his first 22 saves of 2021 before pain and ferocity in the striking zone saw him eventually lose his closer job to Giovanny Gallegos. Reyes gave up Chris Taylor's game-ending homer in the NL Wild Card Game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Reyes, who turns 28 in August, is on a salary of $2.85 million this season in the second of three years eligible for arbitration.
