Rockies manager Walt Weiss doesn’t have a new contract. Not yet anyway. Owner Dick Monfort is expected to meet with members of the front office and Weiss beginning Wednesday at the club’s spring training headquarters in Scottsdale. Monfort wants Weiss back. And Weiss wants to return. The only issue to resolve is the length of the deal. Weiss had no issue working on a one-year contract this season. He wanted to prove himself and determine if it was a good fit after not seeking the job. His next contract will likely will be different whether that means two years or one-year and a club option. Weiss isn’t a hard-line negotiator but he acknowledged that having more than one year might have an impact on how players view him. Monfort told The Post on Sunday that he didn’t expect any front-office changes. However roles as they did 14 months ago could change. It’s possible that assistant general manager Bill Geivett assumes more of a traditional GM role. He’s been in charge of the major league operations since Aug. 1 of last year with GM Dan O’Dowd focusing on the minor league side. Geivett though still reported to O’Dowd. Could O’Dowd have a different title leaving Geivett more responsibilities? That’s possible. It’s expected to be ironed out this week. Torrealba undergoes surgery Veteran catcher Yorvit Torrealba underwent minor surgery on his right knee repairing the medial meniscus. He played through the injury beginning in June. Torrealba will be a free agent. He received high marks for his work with Wilin Rosario who developed a strong friendship with Torrealba. Torrealba hopes to play for two more years and would like to retire with the Rockies. As it stands Jordan Pacheco is the likely backup catcher. Weiss believes it is Pacheco’s best position and wants to get him more at-bats. Pacheco will play winter ball for seven weeks to receive additional reps at catcher first and third.
