The Rockies have dealt 32-year old righty swinging catcher Miguel Olivo to the Blue Jays for either a player to be named later or cash. Olivo played in 112 games for the Rockies last season and he was 106 of 394 (.269 avg, .765 OPS) with 55 runs scored, 14 homers, 58 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. Olivo has played in 866 games in his first 9 years in the majors and he is 708 of 2,876 (.246 avg, .710 OPS) with 345 runs scored, 110 homers, 388 RBIs and 44 stolen bases. The Rockies have already saved $500K in this deal because they didn’t have to buy out Olivo’s option. Look for the Rockies to be on the hunt for a veteran catcher to share time with Chris Iannetta behind the plate in 2011.
