Rockies make Cuddyer signing official, add Blake
The Colorado Rockies officially announced the signing of outfielder Michael Cuddyer to a three-year contract on Tuesday. Cuddyer, 32, spent his entire career with the Minnesota Twins before agreeing to the deal, reportedly worth $31.5 million.
Cuddyer will play right field, where he has played the most games in his career.
The Rockies also announced they had agreed to a one-year deal with third baseman Casey Blake pending a physical. Blake, 38, has been with the Los Angeles Dodgers since 2008 and hit .252 with four home runs and 26 RBI in 63 games in 2011. He should compete for the third base job and could help hold the spot for, one of the Rockies’ top prospects who will likely start the season in Double-A.
