DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies announced today that the club has tendered contract offers to right-handed pitcher Josh Fogg and catcher Yorvit Torrealba. The move allows the Rockies to retain exclusive negotiating rights with the two players. Right-handed pitcher Chin-hui Tsao was not tendered a contract, meaning he is free to negotiate with all teams on a contract, including the Rockies.

Fogg, who turns 30 years old tomorrow, went 11-9 with a 5.49 ERA (172.0 ip, 105 er) in 31 games/starts for Colorado in 2006. His 11 wins were 2nd-most among any Rockies pitcher last season, as he has won 10 or more games in 4 of the last 5 campaigns. Fogg threw his first career shutout on June 30 at Seattle, becoming the first Rockies pitcher ever to face the minimum 27 batters in a complete game. He is 50-51, 4.89 in 167 games/150 starts in his career.

Torrealba, 28, hit .247 with 7 home runs and 43 RBI in 65 games for the Rockies this past season, a year in which he was hindered by a pair of disabled list stints for a right shoulder strain. His 43 RBI was the most for any National League player to appear in less than 90 games in 2006. Of Torrealba's 55 hits last season, 26 went for extra bases (47.3%), as he batted .309 with runners in scoring position and .385 with the bases loaded.

Tsao, 25, spent the entire season on the 60-day disabled list as he continued to rehab from right shoulder surgery. He has appeared in 29 games in his major league career, with his last outing coming on May 11, 2005 vs. Atlanta.
