The Rockies have agreed to a one-year Major League contract with veteran utility player Alexi Amarista, according to MLB Network insider Jon Heyman. The club has not confirmed the deal.
The 27-year-old Amarista was non-tendered by the Padres after hitting .257/.295/.271 in 65 games last season. In six seasons with the Angels and Padres, Amarista hit .230/.276/.320. He's played both middle-infield positions, and he has also spent time at third and in the outfield.
