Red Sox Sign Minor League Catcher

Yesterday, the news came out that the Red Sox had signed minor league catcher, Gustavo Molina (right). He is not related to the three Molina catchers, who are brothers, which is too bad. I don't know about his fielding, but from the stats I've seen, he's a pretty awful hitter as in his two short MLB seasons in 2007 and 2008 he hit .111 and .143. The catcher has experience at third and first base as well. He is a career .235 hitter in the minor leagues, and a career .118 hitter in the major leagues. They have given him a spring training invite, but I sincerely doubt that he will play unless Jason Varitek and/or Victor Martinez get themselves landed on the DL. Go Sox, all the way!!!!!
