Cardinals claimed C George Kottaras off waivers from the Indians.
The Cards needed some depth at catcher following the Yadier Molina (thumb) injury, and Kottaras makes sense as a stop-gap. The 31-year-old is a career .216/.326/.415 hitter but did slug three homers over 10 games with the Tribe. He figures to share time with Tony Cruz while Molina is out, with Audry Perez heading back to Triple-A Memphis. Kottaras won't officially report until Saturday. Jul 11 - 1:48 PM
