The son of Rockies catcher Yorvit Torrealba is expected to be at tonight's game at Coors Field.

Eleven-year-old Yorvit Eduardo was kidnapped in Venezuela and was released two weeks ago. His son is fine and now with his dad in Denver.

Torrealba says his wife and son will be staying with him for a while.

Torrealba returned to Venezuela during the ordeal but kept his presence a secret, thinking that would be better for negotiations to win his son's release.

He said his son was treated well by the abductors, who joked with him and even made him mad when they criticized Torrealba's play with the Rockies.
