Yorvit Torrealba better start hitting or he is going to lose playing time for the Colorado Rockies

Yorvit Torrealba might become the Rockies’ backup catcher soon as he is clearly getting outplayed by Chris Iannetta. Torrealba has played in 39 games this season for the Rockies and he is 30 for 137 (.219 avg, .595 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 2 homers and 15 RBIs. The Rockies should have been more careful about re-signing Torrealba in the off season after his deal fell through with the Mets due to right shoulder issues. Chris Iannetta had a terrible rookie season but he’s swinging a good stick right now and it should earn him even more playing time than he is already getting. Iannetta has played in 33 games so far this season for the Rockies and he is 30 for 104 (.288 avg, .938 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 6 homers and 21 RBIs.
