Rockies Interested In Bengie Molina

The Rockies have expressed interest in free agent catcher Bengie Molina, tweets Troy Renck of The Denver Post.  Colorado also has interest in Russell Martin though Renck says that landing the former Dodger is something of a longshot (via Twitter).

Molina's offensive numbers took a dive in 2010 when he hit .249/.297/.326 in 118 games for the Giants and Rangers.  The catcher was Type A free agent, but the Rangers did not offer him arbitration.

After announcing in May that he would be retiring after the 2010 season, Molina has slowly softened his stance.  The 36-year-old said that he was still considering retirement in October before finally deciding in November that he wanted to play one more year.
