Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the Rockies have signed free agent outfielder Michael Cuddyer to a three-year, $31.5 million contract.
The figure is a bump up from the three-year, $27 million offer that the Rockies originally proposed, and that's likely what convinced Cuddyer to leave the Twins, who were offering him a three-year, $25 million pact. It's a pretty hefty sum for the 32-year-old corner outfielder, but he should fare well at Coors Field. Cuddyer batted .284/.346/.459 with 20 home runs and 70 RBI over 584 plate appearances this past year for Minnesota.
Hit as well at Target as he did on the road, should still have 1B/2B/OF eligibility, playing home games at Coors now. Anyone else like him as a value pick?
