The Rockies continue their search for a veteran catcher to backup Yorvit Torrealba. They have had talks with both Javy Lopez and Sal Fasano, but talks did not get serious. Lopez, batted .251 with 8 HR and 35 RBI while playing with the Orioles and Red Sox. Fasano, batted .217 with 5 HR and 15 RBI while playing with the Phillies and Yankees. They are also looking to add pitching depth and have held talks with Chris Reitsma and Brian Lawrence. They are also exploring trades and are looking into Detriot's Mike Maroth and Baltimore's Rodrigo Lopez.
