It is now official, the Rays have signed Jose Molina. The signing was first reported over a week ago. However, the Rays may have been waiting to make sure they could trade one of their other catchers. And with John Jaso being dealt last night, it opened the door for Molina.
Molina will make $1.5 million in 2012 with a team option for $1.5 million in 2013. The Rays can buy out the option for $300 thousand.
