2014

2012

Molina's numbers between High-A Dunedin and Double-A Hampshire were outstanding, as he posted a 33:2 K:BB in 22 innings at his final stop in 2011. In addition to missing bats and limiting the free passes, Molina gets a significant number of his outs on the ground as well. Considering that 2011 was just Molina's third season as a pitcher, there may be more growth potential here as he continues to hone his craft. The White Sox acquired him for closer Sergio Santos in December, and it's reasonable to think that Molina could become part of their rotation as early as 2013.
