The Colorado Rockies were thought to have locked up utility man Alexi Amarista around Christmas. Now, the signing is finally official.

It will reportedly be a one-year contract worth $1.25 million guaranteed that includes a team option for a second year. Amarista has a base salary of $1.15 million for 2017, and will get $150,000 if his option, which is worth $2.5 million, is declined.

With the Rockies, Amarista will reunite with former San Diego Padres manager Bud Black. In 65 games last season, the 27-year-old hit .257, with 11 RBI and nine stolen bases. He is a career .230 hitter. Sound defensively, he has the versatility to play almost anywhere on the field for the Rockies.
