A Molina Perhaps

According to the Star-Ledger's Marc Carig, neither Jesus Montero or Austin Romine may be backing up Russ Martin until Francisco Cervelli heals up.

There's a very real possibility that both will get more playing time at Scranton with Gustavo Molina getting the reserve catcher role. “Molina was brought in to be an insurance policy for us,” Brian Cashman said. “That’s why he’s here. He’s got major-league time.”

Molina isn't related to the triumvirate of Bengie, Jose, and Yadier, and has just 23 games of Major League experience with the White Sox, Orioles, Mets, and Red Sox. The 29-yr old has a .122 lifetime batting average in 45 at-bats.
