Rosario scratched with lower back tightness


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Catcher Wilin Rosario suffered lower back tightness and was pulled from the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers, but the issue is not considered serious.

Rosario, who hit 28 home runs as a rookie last season, took batting practice at Salt River Fields at Taking Stick after informing the Rockies of the back problem.

Veteran Yorvit Torrealba, a non-roster invitee, took Rosario's place at catcher.
