Renck writes that it’s unclear if the Rockies are willing to go beyond two years on a deal, but for a 35-year-old catcher coming off a season in which he was limited to just 92 games even a two-year deal is noteworthy.
Wilin Rosario has started 100 games at catcher for the Rockies in each of the past two seasons and his power has been impressive, but his defense has been shaky and apparently the Rockies think he can man other positions well enough. Shifting to first baseman as Todd Helton‘s replacement makes the most obvious sense.
