"Manager Clint Hurdle hinted on Sunday that Iannetta could be in for expanded playing time, the Denver Post reports.
Spin: Iannetta has started 10 games and Yorvit Torrealba 21. However, Iannetta is hitting .308 to Torrealba's .238. "Iannetta has done a good job with the at-bats he's had. He's been very productive," said Hurdle. Iannetta isn't likely to take over as the clear starter anytime soon, but a 50-50 time share is possible.

He also went 3/4 Monday night ;-D .

i'd love to see ianetta pick up the majority of the playing time. he was high on my list of sleepers for last year and didn't really pan out.

he is rocking a .433 babip though, so i wouldn't be surprised to see his average head downhill. i'd still ride him while he's hot though.

Iannetta started behind the dish last night and he certainly made the most of it with a double, home run, and three RBIs. He's is absolutely hammering the ball right now and I don't see how Hurdle can take his bat out of the lineup. Hopefully he's beginning to take over the #1 catching job; most Rockies fans have been clammering for it for a while now.

Keep it going Chris Iannetta!!!!! ;-D

I had a blind auction bid in this past weekend, for Clement, @ $12 lost out on that bid, to another owner, who beat me by $1 ($13 for Clement) so I settled for my next claim, of Iannetta $1, what a steal this has turned out, to be so far.....hopefully he continues and takes Torreablla spot for good.

We start 2 catchers weekly, and I lost Posada to the DL.....Iannetta has done a wonderful job so far. :-D

Dropped Towles for him. Couldn't take anymore of Towles either not playing or going 0-4. I figure even when Ianetta doesn't play, a 0-0 is still better than a 0-4. !+)

I drafted Ianetta in a deep 2 catcher league for that exact reason. :-b

I'm not too educated on the history of Iannetta, was this guy ever labeled for tier 2-ish type catcher numbers?

Here's some good information from John Sickels.

Basically, if they let Iannetta play, I think he will bounce back just fine. That said, I did overrate him to some extent last year, and I think the Grade B+ was a notch too high. I should have had him at Grade B. I think I overreacted to the gaudy numbers at Tulsa. In retrospect, I think my earlier assessment of Iannetta back in 2006 was the right one: he's a .250-.260 hitter (neutral park) in the majors, with enough walks for a nice OBP, some power, and solid glovework. Not a star, but a solid guy.
