Indians, Pirates Interested In Iannetta

A number of teams, including the Indians and Pirates, have inquired on Rockies catcher Chris Iannetta, major-league sources tell Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.  It was reported on Wednesday that the Rockies are not actively shopping the veteran. 

Iannetta, 28, is under contract through next season with a club option for 2013.  He's set to earn $2.55MM this season, $3.55MM in 2012, and his option is worth $5MM with an affordable $250K buyout. 

Morosi writes that the BoSox have had off-and-on interest with the backstop but they appear to be content with their catching situation at the moment.
