Belisle, Rockies Add 2013 And $4.35M
DENVER (AP) – Reliever Matt Belisle and the Colorado Rockies have agreed to a two-year contract that includes a mutual option for 2014 and adds an additional $4.35 million.
The right-hander had agreed last February to a deal that pays him $3,775,000 this year and allows him to earn an additional $225,000 in bonuses based on games finished.
Friday’s agreement adds a $4.1 million salary for 2013 and a $4.25 million option for 2014 with a $250,000 buyout.
The 31-year-old was 10-4 with a 3.25 ERA last year with 58 strikeouts and 14 walks in 72 innings.
