Rockies Rumors 2012: Ramon Hernandez No Longer In Triple-A, Possible Trade Coming?

Colorado Rockies catcher Ramon Hernandez is no longer with Triple-A Colorado Springs, leading to speculation that he could be activated and traded soon, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post. Hernandez has been on the disabled list with a hand injury, but it appears that the Rockies are ready to activate the veteran backstop.

Signed to a two-year contract before the season, Hernandez has struggled with injuries and poor performance during his first few months in Colorado. One of the better offensive catchers in baseball during 2010-2011 with the Cincinnati Reds, his struggles have led to rookie Wilin Rosario taking over as the starter behind the plate.

The New York Mets have been one team to reportedly show interest in Hernandez, although it's unclear how close the Rockies might be to a deal with any team.
