Rockies to sign Cuddyer to three-year deal
The Colorado Rockies have reportedly agreed to terms with free-agent outfielder Michael Cuddyer. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the deal will pay Cuddyer $31.5 million over three years.
The Rockies have been considered the favorites to sign Cuddyer since his former team, the Minnesota Twins, signed Josh Willingham earlier this week. Cuddyer, 32, can play both corner outfield positions and help out first and third as well. He hit .284 with 20 home runs an 70 RBI in in 139 games and made the All-Star team for the first time in 2011.
