Per rotoworld:

Orioles claimed catcher Gustavo Molina off waivers from the White Sox.
Molina, 25, opened the year as Toby Hall's replacement in Chicago and went 1-for-18 while backing up A.J. Pierzynski. He was hitting .209/.265/.281 in 139 at-bats for Triple-A Charlotte. He's a quality defender, but he'd make Orioles fans yearn for Paul Bako if he took over as the team's No. 2 catcher next year. He'll be assigned to Triple-A Norfolk.

Should have kept him and got a couple draft picks. Horrible job KW!

They probably think he's one of the Molina brothers. Or maybe they had a good experience with Chris Widger......

Clearing a roster spot on July 30 could be a sign of a multi-player trade coming. Otherwise this is a strange time to put someone on your 40-man roster through waivers.

Yes, I agree that the timing is a bit strange. You would expect it, I don't know, two days from now. Not a day before the trading deadline though. That makes little sense.

He's a classic case of a hitter being completely overmatched at the major league level.

I like this style of thinking.

Remember, pretty much everyone goes through waivers at one point, just to gauge interest.

Gosh, Triple Threat Sports is going to be so mad when I call in to cancel my jersey order.

One thing he could do is catch.
I know he couldn't hit a lick, but defense seems to be of diminshed importance to the Sox lately.
