The Blue Jays have picked up its option on catcher Jose Molina for 2011. Jordan Bastian of MLB.com says via Twitter the option was for $1.2 million, though Cot's Baseball Contracts says it's $1 million.

Unless the Jays plan to trade Molina, this is a pretty good indication Toronto is going to let John Buck leave in free agency and install J.P. Arencibia as the starter, with Molina remaining the backup.

Molina, 35, the middle of the three catching Molina brothers (Bengie of the Rangers is 36, Yadier of the Cardinals is 28). He batted .246/.304/.377 in 57 games last season.
