The Rockies have traded catcher Chris Iannetta to the Angels in exchange for pitcher Tyler Chatwood, and Colorado has signed free-agent Ramon Hernandez to replace Iannetta.
The teams announced the trade Wednesday night, and Rockies later announced that Hernandez had agreed to terms, pending a physical. Foxsports.com reported that Hernandez will get $6.5 million on a two-year contract.
The 35-year-old Hernandez hit .282 with 12 home runs in 91 games last year with the Reds. Iannetta, 28, hit 14 home runs in 112 games for the Rockies with a .238 batting average but a .370 on-base percentage.
The Rockies have been looking to add starting pitchers this winter.
