Giants, Mariners, Rockies Interested In Olivo

The Giants, Mariners, and Rockies are leading the charge for free agent catcher Miguel Olivo, tweets Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star.  Olivo, 31, hit .249/.292/.490 in 416 plate appearances for the Royals this year, catching 845.6 innings.  The Royals, intending to reboot their catching situation, declined Olivo's $3.3MM mutual option last month.  Of the three suitors named here, you'd have to think Olivo would find the Rockies the least appealing given the presence of Chris Iannetta.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick notes that the Rockies also maintain interest in re-signing Yorvit Torrealba.
