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' Willin Rosario loses arbitration hearing, will make $2.8M


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario lost his arbitration hearing, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Rosario, who filed for $3.3 million, will make $2.8 million in 2015.

Report: Rockies C Nick Hundley projected to start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) Rockies catcher Nick Hundley is expected to serve as the team's starter behind the plate and is projected to bat eighth, according to MLB.com.

"Last year was a great move for my career, getting to Baltimore and having to learn people on the fly," Hundley said Tuesday morning after catching the bullpen sessions of several pitchers, per MLB.com. "It prepared me for this situation. At the same time, I've never been in action with these guys yet. Getting down here early, catching bullpens, talking is invaluable for us."

Hundley signed a two-year, $6.25-million contract with Colorado in January, and the addition is expected to push incumbent Wilin Rosario into a reserve role. Rosario has also been working out at first base and in the outfield and could be a regular option against left-handed pitching.

Hundley isn't looking to make waves by trying to make his new pitching staff adjust to him.

"It's my job to get acclimated to them, not their job to get acclimated to me," Hundley said. "These guys have had success at the big league level. It's not my job to be a pitching coach and change anybody. If I come in and start talking about mechanical adjustments after catching 10 pitches, you're going to lose credibility really quick. I'm here to catch these guys and get the most out of them, but it starts with being quiet and learning."

Hundley hit .243/.273/.358 with six home runs and 22 RBI in 218 at-bats with the Padres and Orioles in 2014. Rosario hit .267/.305/.435 with 13 home runs and 54 RBI in 382 at-bats with the Rockies last season.


Weiss: Rockies have no doubts Rosario can be 'functional' at 1B


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2015) Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario has worked this offseason on making the transition from primarily playing at catcher to also playing at first base and in the outfield. The updates from the Rockies have been positive, and manager Walt Weiss delivered another encouraging update Monday.

"We still see him as a catcher first, but we're trying to make him functional at first," Weiss told MLB Network Radio. "We don't have any doubt he'll do that."


Rockies confident catcher Wilin Rosario can play 1B, OF


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Rockies general manager Jeff Birdich said the team is confident catcher Wilin Rosario can make the transition from playing primarily at catcher to also playing at first base and in the outfield, according to The Denver Post.

“I think Wilin has the athletic ability to do this, and he certainly has the work ethic,” Bridich said.


Rockies' Wilin Rosario immersed in learning how to play 1B, OF


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario has spent the offseason working at first base and in the outfield, and will continue to work at both positions at the team's academy in the Dominican Republic before spring training begins, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Monday.

With the Rockies considering carrying three catchers -- Rosario, Nick Hundley and Michael McKenry -- Rosario has embraced learning new positions in order to keep his bat in the lineup.

"He's been great," Weiss said, per MLB.com. "He's a great kid, and I didn't expect anything different. He has embraced learning to play the different spots. He realizes he is an offensive weapon."


Report: Rockies' Wilin Rosario files for $3.3 million in arbitration


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario has filed for $3.3 million in arbitration, while the team has offered $2.8 million, MLB.com reports.

Rosario is eligible for arbitration for the first time this offseason. He hit .267/.305/.435 with 13 home runs and 54 RBI in 382 at-bats in 2014.


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.
