DENVER (AP) - Infielder Jonathan Herrera and the Colorado Rockies agreed to a one-year, $900,000 contract on Wednesday, avoiding arbitration.
Herrera hit .262 with nine doubles, three homers, 12 RBIs and 29 runs in 86 games last season, when he was dogged by injuries. He missed a total of 39 games while on the DL, first with a strained right hamstring and then a left wrist infection.
The 28-year-old Venezuelan has spent his entire career with the Rockies after signing with them as a non-drafted free agent in 2002.
In 294 career major league games, he's hit .259 with seven homers and 50 RBIs.
