Tyler Colvin CF SF 3 Months

The Orioles and Tyler Colvin have agreed to a deal, a source tells Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun.

The deal is a major league deal and is pending a physical. The outfielder/first baseman enjoyed a nice 2012 season in which he hit .290/.327/.531 with 18 home runs in 420 at-bats, but he struggled to be effective at the major league level last season. He'll serve as bench depth for the Orioles.

Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Wednesday that Tyler Colvin and Corey Dickerson will share time in center field while Dexter Fowler is out.

Colvin entered play Wednesday in a 2-for-32 (.063) slump since June 17, but Weiss thinks he's "taken some good swings lately." Dickerson has hit a whole lot, either, sporting a .235/.316/.471 in seven contests since his call-up. Both players hit left-handed, so it won't be a strict platoon but rather a "mix and match" situation, according to Weiss.

Rockies recalled OF Tyler Colvin from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Colvin will provide depth in the outfield for the Rockies while Michael Cuddyer recovers from a minor rib cage injury. Colvin, 27, was sporting a .293/.396/.518 batting line, nine homers and 29 RBI through 55 games this season at the Triple-A level. He may hold some value in NL-only fantasy formats.

Rockies optioned OF Tyler Colvin to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Colvin had a breakout season for the Rockies in 2012, hitting .290/.327/.531 with 18 homers, 72 RBI and seven stolen bases. He struggled to get things going in the spring though, hitting just .167/.216/.208 with 14 strikeouts in 48 at-bats. While this move comes as a major surprise, with the health of Todd Helton, Michael Cuddyer and Carlos Gonzalez always in question, Colvin should see plenty of at-bats in Colorado during the season. He could also attract interest on the trade market.

Rockies avoided arbitration with OF Tyler Colvin by agreeing to a one-year contract.

The financial details aren't known. Colvin, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time as a Super 2 player, had a nice bounce-back year in 2012, batting .290/.327/.531 with 18 longballs. He'll open 2013 in a backup role but will see plenty of playing time when the inevitable Todd Helton injury occurs.
