MLB free agent watch: Justin Morneau agrees to two-year deal with Rockies

First baseman Justin Morneau has agreed to a two-year deal with the Colorado Rockies according to CBS Sports on December 3. The contract is reportedly worth about $13 million and is pending physical.

The 32-year-old Morneau played his entire career with the Minnesota Twins before being traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2013. In 152 combined games with both teams, Morneau hit .259 with 17 home runs but is capable of a higher offensive production as injuries have slowed the fist baseman down a bit.

Morneau is expected to be a suitable replacement for Todd Helton, who retired at the end of the 2013 season. Moving to a more hitter friendly park like Coors Field could be just what the doctor ordered as far as Morneau’s power is concerned.

Justin Morneau has 221 career homeruns in 11 seasons. His most productive output came in 2006 with the Twins when he hit 34 home runs while belting in 130 RBI.
