CHICAGO (AP) — Tampa Bay Rays catcher Jose Molina is day to day with a right quad contusion after leaving Saturday’s game in the fourth inning against the Chicago White Sox.
Molina was hit by Chicago pitcher Jose Santiago and was checked at home plate by Rays manager Joe Maddon and head trainer Ron Porterfield before heading to first. Before the next pitch, Molina was replaced by backup Jose Lobaton.
Molina was 0 for 1 and entered Saturday’s game hitting .234.
Santiago was pitching for Gavin Floyd, who left with two outs in the third after straining his right elbow.
