White Sox Outright Nestor Molina

The White Sox have outrighted pitcher Nestor Molina, CSNChicago.com’s Dan Hayes tweets. He’ll head back to Double-A Birmingham, where he’s spent the whole season.

Molina, 25, was a top prospect in the Blue Jays system before they traded him to the White Sox for Sergio Santos (who, coincidentally, was designated for assignment earlier this week) following the 2011 season. Since then, Molina has struggled — his numbers took a big step backward in 2012 at Double-A, and he’s had injury troubles with his elbow and shoulder. This season, he’s posted a 4.65 ERA with 6.8 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9 in 60 innings of relief at Birmingham.

So it appears neither side won that trade. KW being KW, thinking he could strike a diamond in rough, and giving up a closer to do it. Shame that Santos got hurt a lot as he was pretty good at closing.
