Yorvit Torrealba will not return from the 7-day concussion disabled list when first eligible.
"I'm not sure he is quite ready to be activated (Monday)," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "But I don't think it will be too much longer." Torrealba has been out with concussion-like symptoms since August 19. There has been a rash of catcher concussions this season.

Yorvit Torrealba hit a walkoff RBI single in the Rockies' 6-5 win over the Braves on Wednesday.
Torrealba did it as a pinch-hitter, too, adding to the heroics. The Rockies trailed by two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning when Jonathan Herrera, Troy Tulowitzki and Dexter Fowler staged a comeback rally against Braves closer Craig Kimbrel. Torrealba then helped the Rockies break through three frames later.

The Rockies plan to continue using Yorvit Torrealba as Jorge De La Rosa's personal catcher.
The Rockies believe Torrealba provides a needed calming influence for the left-hander. It means that Wilin Rosario will have the day off on Sunday. "It seems to work, plus we have a day game after a night game, so we'll roll Yorvit out there," manager Walt Weiss said.

Rockies purchased the contract of C Yorvit Torrealba from Triple-A Colorado Springs.
As expected, Torrealba will serve as the primary backup behind Wilin Rosario. The 34-year-old veteran beat out Ramon Hernandez for the job by hitting a cool .500/.545/.700 with a homer and five RBI over 13 games in the spring. He could be worth a look in the deepest of NL-only leagues while playing half his games at Coors Field, but has little fantasy relevance outside of that.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies have signed Yorvit Torrealba.
He doesn't reveal whether it's a major or minor league deal, though MLB.com's Thomas Harding report earlier this week that they had offered him a minor league pact. It's an odd landing spot for Torrealba, who gives the Rockies a third catcher along with Wilin Rosario and Ramon Hernandez. Torrealba 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.

MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports that the Rockies have offered a minor league contract to free agent catcher Yorvit Torrealba.
Torrealba, who previously played with the Rockies from 2006-2009, 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. The Rockies currently project to open the season with Wilin Rosario and Ramon Hernandez behind the plate, so Torrealba is said to be "considering his options."

Yorvit Torrealba has opted for free agency.
Torrealba was removed from the Brewers' 40-man roster and refused an outright assignment to Triple-A Nashville. The 34-year-old backstop batted just .227/.293/.330 with four homers and a .623 OPS in 218 plate appearances this season between the Rangers, Blue Jays and Brewers, but he shouldn't have a problem landing a spring training invite somewhere.
