Jose Molina had PRK eye surgery in October and is happily experiencing spring training without contact lenses.
“It’s great,” he said. “I was always getting dust in my contacts when I was catching or they were moving around. This is going to help me as a player.”
Molina said he is prepared to catch as many games as the Yankees need. “You know me, whatever they want,” he said.
Given the uncertainty with Jorge Posada, Molina could prove to be an important player this season. At worst, you have to figure he catches at least 40 games.
