Dexter Fowler has agreed to sign a two-year deal that is reportedly worth $11.6 million, according to Jon Heyman.
Fowler, who is 26 years old, posted a .300/.389/.474 line last season. He also hit 13 home runs and stole 12 bags. He was eligible for arbitration and the new contract will buy out his second and third years of eligibility.
During talks Fowler filed for $5.15 million and the team countered at $4.25. He will receive $4.25 million this year — a $1 million signing bonus, plus a $3.25 million salary. He’ll also receive $7.35 million in 2014.
Dex is the Rockies all-time triples leader (50) and has played more games in CF in club history than any other player.
