Rockies Have Offered Yorvit Torreabla a Minor League Deal

Yorvit Torrealba has been a productive Major League back-up over the last few seasons.  He brought some negative press to himself when he got into an altercation during winter ball a season ago.  However, his veteran understanding of how to call a game has drawn the Colorado Rockies to him.  They have reportedly offered Torrealba a minor league deal.

According to Thomas Harding of, the Rockies have extended a minor league contract offer to Torrealba.  He has not yet accepted the offer and is considering his options.  Obviously, Torrealba wants a Major League deal, but he will have every opportunity to compete for a spot on the Rockies' roster if he were to accept this contract.

Torrealba played for the Rockies from 2006-2009.  He helped the Rockies make it all the way to the 2007 World Series.  Torrealba has played for seven clubs in his 13-year Major League career.  He has hit .257/.316/.386 over that span.

Torrealba dealt with back problems throughout the 2012 season.  He struggled while hitting .233 combined between three different teams.
