Yorvit Adolfo Torrealba [pron., /jo.vit to.re.al.ba/] is a Major League Baseball catcher who is currently playing for the San Diego Padres. He previously played for the San Francisco Giants, Seattle Mariners, and the Colorado Rockies. He bats and throws right-handed.
During November of 2007, trade rumors that Torrealba would be traded to the Mets intensified. Both Yorvit and the Mets agreed on a deal for $14.4 million over three years. The deal had seemed to be done, but with the failing of Yorvit's physical he was never sent to New York. It is likely that his physical was not OK'd because of his ongoing shoulder problem. On November 29, 2007, the Rockies re-signed him.
On November 6, 2009, the Rockies decided to go with youngster Chris Iannetta as their primary catcher and declined their 2010 contract option with Torrealba, him making him a free agent.
