The Rockies have signed 37-year old righty swinging catcher Paul LoDuca to a minor league deal. He last played in the majors in 2008 with the Nationals & Marlins. LoDuca has played in 1,082 games in his 11 years in the majors and he is 1,112 for 3,892 (.286 avg, .746 OPS) with 483 runs scored, 80 homers, 481 RBIs and 20 stolen bases. He is a 4-time all-star in the N.L. LoDuca has played for manager Jim Tracy when they were both with the Dodgers so he will likely give him a chance to earn a spot on the Rockies’ roster this spring.
