Rockies manager Weiss: I won't carry three pure catchers on roster


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Rockies manager Walt Weiss made it clear that he won't carry three pure catchers on the 25-man active roster, and told reporters that Wilin Rosario is "serviceable" as a backup first baseman option, per the Denver Post.

"I don't think it can be strictly three catchers," Weiss said. "Somebody is going to have to be more versatile than just a catcher. I don't envision carrying three catchers only.

"Obviously, you are talking about Wilin at first base. I think he's going to be very serviceable over there and the more things he can do, the better it is for us."

With Nick Hundley likely slated to serve as the club's No. 2 catcher behind Rosario, Michael McKenry appears destined to start the year in the minors, barring a trade before opening day.


Rockies, Michael McKenry able to avoid arbitration


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) The Rockies and catcher Michael McKenry avoided arbitration Friday, agreeing to a one-year, $1.0876 million contract, according to MLB.com. McKenry, who was in his first year of arbitration, made $750,000 in 2014.

McKenry hit .315 with a .398 on-base percentage, .512 slugging percentage and .910 OPS in 57 games for Colorado in 2014. He also had eight home runs, nine doubles and 22 RBI.


Birdich: Rockies may carry three catchers if Rosario's not dealt


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2015) Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said Monday the team could carry three catchers in 2015, if they don't trade Wilin Rosario, per The Denver Post. The other two catchers on the roster would be Nick Hundley and Michael McKenry.

"This is not some harbinger for a Wilin Rosario trade," Bridich said Monday as the team announced a two-year deal for Hundley. "There has been interest in Wilin this offseason, but there has not been a situation that made sense for us -- certainly not at this point to take it seriously.

"We are talking about a young, power bat. A kid that hits home runs and has driven in runs in the past. He struggled at times last year, both at the plate and behind the plate, but that doesn't diminish the talent there."

Bridich added the Rockies are interested in using Rosario at first base on occasion and as a right-handed power bat off the bench.
