DENVER (AP) -The Colorado Rockies signed outfielder Cory Sullivan to a one-year, $1 million contract Thursday.
The 29-year-old Sullivan hit .286 in 72 games for the Rockies last season after being called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs. He started 24 games, all in center field. He has hit .281 with eight home runs and 74 RBIs in his three seasons with the Rockies.
The sides agreed to the one-year deal shortly before the non-tender deadline, keeping him from becoming a free agent. Sullivan's deal includes bonuses of $25,000 each for 250, 300, 350 and 400 plate appearances and $50,000 each for 450 and 500 plate appearances.
The club said it didn't tender 2008 contracts to right-handed pitcher Darren Clarke and outfielder Sean Barker but resigned them to minor league contracts.
Clark, 26, missed most of last season with injuries, making two relief appearances in May before being optioned to Double-A Tulsa. Barker, 27, spent most of the season with Colorado Springs, hitting .330 with six home runs and 46 RBIs.
