Yankees trade for Jose Molina

Looking to bolster their bench, the New York Yankees acquired catcher Jose Molina from the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night for minor league reliever Jeff Kennard.

Molina, a defensive specialist, was batting .228 with no homers and 10 RBIs in 123 at-bats for the AL West-leading Angels, who have a surplus of catchers (source).

Wil Nieves will be with the team until Molina arrives. He will then be designated for assignment. It'll be very awkward if Nieves has to play tomorrow.

It's funny that Nieves went 2-3 with two RBIs tonight.

Makes no sense. Molina is hitting .224 and makes 1 mil more that Nieves. They are not getting Johnny Bench here.

Makes a little sense, Mike. Molina is batting a .100 points higher than Nieves and at this point is a much better defensive catcher than Nieves is.
