Bengie Molina was originally a short stop?

I was flying back from Omaha yesterday (boy, are my arms tired!) and I thought I would pick up a magazine to read (as opposed to, you know, actually getting some work done). Of course, given that baseball season is coming up I chose the TSN preview magazine as opposed to the 10,000 NFL draft/fantasy football quides (man, has baseball fallen behind football or what? Good Lord).

Long story short, they mentioned in an article that Molina was actually signed as a short stop. I find this hard to believe, for a myriad of reasons. Number one, the idea of Molina actually trying to show athleticism gives me the giggles, number 2, aren't all of his brothers catchers as well? and last but not least, he is fat and I just always assumed that he has been fat forever.

 

Can this possibly be true?
