Ramon Hernandez Drawing Trade Interest

A few teams looking for an extra catcher are talking to the Rockies about acquiring Ramon Hernandez, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (on Twitter).  The Yankees haven't inquired but the Angels, Pirates, Rays, and Phillies could all have interest (Twitter link).

The Rockies have a surplus of catchers with Hernandez, Wilin Rosario, Jordan Pacheco, and Yorvit Torrealba in the fold.  Colorado is said to like Torrealba's veteran leadership and his handling of young pitchers, making fellow veteran Hernandez expendable.  Hernandez, 36, is set to earn $3.2MM this season on the backend of his two-year pact.
