Casey Blake Signing: Infielder Inks 1-Year Deal With Colorado Rockies

The Colorado Rockies announced on Tuesday that the club has come to terms on a one-year contract with veteran infielder Casey Blake. According to MLB.com's Thomas Harding, the deal could be worth up to $3 million:

Utility man Casey Blake's deal is a one-year, $2 million, non-guaranteed contract with $1 million on performance bonuses.

The 38-year-old had injury problems in 2011 and played in just 63 games with the Los Angeles Dodgers but put together a respectable .252/.342/.371 line. He hit a combined 35 home runs as a regular starter in 2009 and 2010 and could be a solid short-term solution for the Rockies at third base.

The Rockies also formally introduced outfielder Michael Cuddyer on Tuesday.
