The Rockies have designated catcher Ramon Hernandez for assignment, reports Troy Renck of the Denver Post.

More Rockies: The Components of a Great Walk-Up Song

Hernandez lost the battle for a spot with Yorvit Torrealba, who will get to stay on the Rockies roster. The loss of the battle is what lead to Hernandez being cut from the Rockies.

Hernandez told Renck that he still has something left in the tank. He has been mentioned in rumors with several teams in the past few months, so it would not be surprising to see him catch on somewhere.

There were rumors around last year's trade deadline that the Mets were interested, so if they decide they need some depth they could contact Hernandez.

Hernandez, 36, has played for the Athletics, Padres, Orioles, Reds, and then the Rockies last season, He was at one time considered one of the better catchers in the game, but now he is more of a back-up/depth type. It will be interesting to see where he catches on, and what impact he might have.
