Texas pursuing Jose Molina

New, 3 comments

Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the Rangers are pursuing free agent catcher Jose Molina. Molina has already turned down a minor league offer from the club and it is unclear if the team will improve on their offer.

Molina only appeared in 52 games for the Yankees last season, hitting a disappointing .217 with 1 home run. However, Molina has established a reputation of being very good at handling pitchers and that is where most of his value lies.\

Still, the Rangers have all but opened spring training and signing someone who may not reach 200 at-bats to a guaranteed contract is not worth it for the budget strapped Rangers.
