For whatever reason, it has taken close to two weeks for the parties involved to take care of all the necessary paperwork that goes along with a free agent signing, including the transferring of medical records and pre-signing physicals.
According to Kirby Arnold of the Everett Herald, that should all change by the weekend. Olivo passed his physical with flying colors on Wednesday in Seattle and the contract should be made official by Thursday or Friday.
The 32-year-old catcher hit .269/.315/.449 with 14 home runs and 58 RBI over 394 at-bats for the Rockies in 2010. He’s expected to share time behind the plate with Adam Moore next season with the M’s.
