Reds acquire C Colina off waivers


September 11, 2007
CINCINNATI (TICKER) -- The Cincinnati Reds acquired catcher Alvin Colina off waivers from the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday.

Colina hit .195 with five home runs and 35 RBI in 80 games for Class AAA Colorado Springs of the Pacific Coast League. He also threw out 38 percent (23-of-60) of the baserunners who were attempting to steal.

The 26-year-old Colina made his major league debut in 2006, appearing in two games for the Rockies. The Venezuela native was named a minor league all-star during the 2000 and 2003 seasons.

He hit below .200 at AAA? What is the reason for this pickup? If he can't hit AAA, I would not expect him to help at the major league level. I suppose he is insurance in case the Reds decline Valentin's option.
