NEW YORK (CBS SPORTS) - What, you didn’t know that Bengie Molina wasn’t retired yet? Hard to blame anyone who didn’t, because he did not play at all in 2011. He just had never offically announced his retirement. Saturday night, in the form of a retirement party with former San Francisco Giants teammates, it happened. So he’s now off the free agency market.

Molina, 37, retires with a career line of .274/.307/.411 with 144 home runs and 711 RBI in 1,362 regular-season games. He has two World Series rings (he got a ring from the 2010 Giants, even though he was traded July 1 of that season), just like his two brothers, Yadier and Jose. Bengie Molina played for the Angels, Blue Jays, Giants and Rangers. He won the AL Gold Glove in 2002 and 2003, when he was the Angels’ starting catcher.

He last played with the Rangers, helping them reach their first World Series in 2010.
