Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors predicts that catcher Yorvit Torrealba, who has cut ties with the Padres and disagrees with the direction of the team, could end up with the Dodgers and take over as No. 1 catcher. But Dierkes also sees a reunion with the Rockies, where he could team with Chris Iannetta as co-catchers the way the two did in 2008 and 2009. With the Rockies still hoping Iannetta, who signed a three-year deal last winter, takes the reins, Torrealba’s best bet may be elsewhere. But Rockies fans can dream. In 2007 and 2009, seasons in which Torrealba was healthy, his clutch hitting was a key to playoff runs. … Free agent pitcher Bartolo Colon is on the Rockies’ radar. He said as much in October to ESPN Deportes and the Denver Post mentioned it, as well.
