DENVER – The Colorado Rockies announced today that the club has avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal with infielder Jonathan Herrera. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, per club policy.

Herrera, 28, was a member of the Rockies Opening Day roster for the second-straight season in 2012.
