NASHVILLE, Tenn. • The Cardinals’ search for an assistant hitting coach has led to a member of their extended family with a familiar last name.
The Cardinals will offer Bengie Molina the role of assistant hitting coach, a move that would complete manager Mike Matheny’s staff for the 2013 season. The offer will allow him to join his younger brother Yadier Molina on the same team for the first time in their professional careers. The elder Molina, 38, last played in 2010, ending a career that included two Rawlings Gold Glove awards at catcher. Any announcement on a hiring will come after the winter meetings.
