Rockies signed C Yorvit Torrealba to a minor league contract.
He'll get a minor league invite. It's an odd landing spot for Torrealba, who gives the Rockies a third catcher along with Wilin Rosario and Ramon Hernandez. Torrealba could open the year on the Opening Day roster if Hernandez isn't recovered from hamstring surgery in time. The veteran backstop batted .227/.293/.330 with four home runs and a .623 OPS in 218 plate appearances last season between the Rangers, Blue Jays and Brewers.
