It appears as if veteran Jose Molina has gained exclusive catching rights with another starter.

Last season Molina tagged up with Brandon Morrow for 20 of his 27 starts and on Wednesday, prior to the Jays game against the Pirates, manager John Farrell suggested that the 35-year-old Molina will do the same with Kyle Drabek if the rookie right-hander makes the team as expected.

"I know Jose has done a great job with him and he's matched up with him again today," Farrell said. "Early on for a specific reason, and to just teach him along the way what his stuff, how it can play against major-league hitters."

Farrell was asked if Drabek would benefit more by having Molina behind the plate, such as Morrow did in 2010.
