Rockies' Torrealba Back In US, Kidnapped Son OK

By  | 

Colorado Rockies catcher Yorvit Torrealba has returned to the United States, and could rejoin his team a little more than a week after his 11-year-old son and brother-in-law were released by kidnappers in Venezuela.

Rockies manager Jim Tracy said before Tuesday's game in Milwaukee that "if everything goes OK, (Torrealba) would meet back up with us Friday."

Venezuelan authorities said Torrealba's family members were abducted last week while driving to the boy's school along with a relative of the boy's mother.

They were released the next day.
