What has been confirmed to be a minor league deal, Yorvit Torrealba agreed to a one-year deal with the Rockies. Those that have followed the team over the years will recognize one of the fan favorites that was a part of the 2007 and 2009 magical teams.
For his part Torrealba seems excited to get back to Colorado, as he tweeted (in spanish):
Good evening. I want to tell my fans that I have signed with Colorado for a year. Thank you all for the support.
It is still uncertain his roll, given that the team still carries Ramon Hernandez as well as Wilin Rosario, who showed great power last season mixed with terrible plate coverage.
The team also signed Jonathan “Sparkplug” Herrera to a one-year deal, avoiding arbitration. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
