The Colorado Rockies have several viable catching options in camp, which could lead the team to ultimately trade veteran Ramon Hernandez before the start of the regular season, according to Thomas Harding of MLB.com. Colorado is set to enter the year with Wilin Rosario as its primary catcher. Beyond Rosario, Yorvit Torrealba and Hernandez are competing for a reserve spot with the club. The Rockies are also carrying utility player Jordan Pacheco, who has the ability to suit up behind the plate. If the Rockies are confident that Torrealba can serve as a capable backup to Rosario by the end of spring, they could elect to trade Hernandez. The veteran is owed $3.2 million in 2013, so any trade could involve Colorado eating a portion of his salary. If the team does elect to deal Hernandez, they may do so at the end of camp in hopes of landing an out-of-options pitcher. Troy Renck of The Denver Post reported yesterday that the Rockies are scouting such pitchers, as their rotation features a lot of uncertainty beyond Jhoulys Chacin, Jeff Francis and Jorge De La Rosa.
