ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- The Cardinals announced Tuesday prior to tonight's game, they have activated catcher Yadier Molina from the 10-day injured list.

Molina missed 11 games after being sidelined on May 29 due to right thumb tendon strain.

To replace Molina on the roster, St. Louis purchased the contract of top catching prospect Andrew Knizner from Class-AAA Memphis. Knizner will now return to Memphis.

At the time Molina was placed on the injured list, he was leading all Major League catchers in games played (50), innings caught (416.2), RBI (33), hit (50), doubles (13) and stolen bases (4).
