Rockies sign Iannetta to two-year deal

Dec 9, 2017 - 12:51 AM Catcher Chris Iannetta agreed to a two-year deal with the Colorado Rockies, multiple media outlets reported Friday.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported the deal is worth $8.5 million.

Iannetta, 34, hit .254 with 17 homers and 43 RBIs in 89 games for the Arizona Diamondbacks last season.

Iannetta spent his first six seasons with the Rockies before playing for the Los Angeles Angels for four years. He then spent one season in Seattle and one in Arizona.

Jonathan Lucroy is a free agent who has said he would like to play for the Rockies, so it is unclear what the Rockies plan to do regarding the catcher.

Iannetta has not played more than 92 games in a season since 2014.
