Molina will open the regular season as the Yankees' backup catcher behind starter Russell Martin.

Molina's stay in the majors won't last long.

Gustavo Molina is expected to open the season as the Yankees' backup catcher.

It's possible the Yankees could look elsewhere in a trade, but as of now, he's in position to backup Russell Martin to begin the year. Francisco Cervelli will likely return to the backup role once his broken foot is healed, perhaps by the end of April.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi has indicated recently that Gustavo Molina might be carried as the team's backup catcher behind starter Russell Martin.

Austin Romine has not enjoyed a great spring training, Montero needs every day at-bats, and the Yankees want to bring north a catcher who can handle emergency starts behind the injury-prone Martin. Molina, 29, has 317 career major league plate appearances to his name. He spent most of the 2010 season in Boston's farm system.
