Molina Open To Return With Giants

Free agent catcher Bengie Molina told Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News that he could catch for the Giants, who are without 2010 Rookie of the Year Buster Posey for an extended period of time. Molina hasn’t played since last year, so he wouldn’t expect to be placed on the Giants roster without getting into playing shape first. 

"If I get it in my mind to do this, I would go,” Molina said. “If they need me and want me and they ask me to spend two weeks in the minors, I'd do it. Do I expect them to ask? I'd love to say yes, they will, but I don't think so because of the way things happened at the end."

As Baggarly explains, Molina had critical comments for Giants general manager Brian Sabean after the GM commented publicly on his decision to deal the catcher last summer. The Giants have already inquired on Ivan Rodriguez of the Nationals, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
