Yorvit Torrealba is expected to be placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list after taking a foul tip off his catcher’s mask yesterday, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post.

Torrealba has played sparingly as the Rockies’ backup catcher, starting 40 of 125 games while hitting .252 with zero homers and a career-worst .608 OPS.

Part-time catcher Jordan Pacheco is the only other potential backstop currently on the 40-man roster.
