Josh Bard a possibility

The Rockies are letting catcher Yorvit Torrealba survey the market. But many teams are seeking catchers, and scouts and front-office executives from other teams say they are still wary over Torrealba’s troublesome right shoulder. In fairness, the shoulder didn’t cost him time last season and his throwing improved as the year progressed. Still, concern over the shoulder could scare teams away from offering him a contract fitting of a No. 1 catcher, and that keeps the Rockies solidly in the mix.

A possibility is former Cherry Creek high catcher Josh Bard, who struggled offensively with the Nationals last season but played through a sore right groin. He could have benefitted from time on the disabled list. The Rockies looked at him last winter.
