Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Rockies | Yorvit Torrealba appears at 1B

Colorado Rockies C Yorvit Torrealba made an appearance at first base in the game Wednesday, April 24, against the Atlanta Braves. He had one assist in two innings before delivering the game-winning hit in the 12th inning. "Usually in winter ball I just played first, but I also played once last year when I was with the Toronto Blue Jays," Torrealba said. "Still, it's not my position so I was a little bit nervous."

Fantasy Tip: Even if Torrealba was able to gain eligibility at first base at some point, his fantasy value would be limited to deeper NL-only leagues unless starting C Wilin Rosario suffers some sort of long-term injury.
