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.
