This World Series run might be it for Bengie Molina.

The 36-year-old Texas Rangers catcher said Tuesday he is leaning toward retiring after this year, his 13th major league season.

Molina, whose brothers Jose and Yadier are also big league catchers, had hoped for a multiyear contract last winter and didn't get it. Instead, he re-signed for a fourth season with the San Francisco Giants, who wound up trading him to Texas on July 1 to make room in the catcher spot for talented rookie Buster Posey.

Molina also went to the playoffs three times with the Angels and won a World Series in 2002.
