The Colorado Rockies and Justin Morneau have agreed to a 2-year, $13 million contract, according to many reports. The contract will retain Morneau through the 2015 season.
Justin Morneau in Colorado could hit 30 home runs. His power is something the Rockies have wanted to be apart of their team. In 2013, Morneau hit .259/.323/.411 with 17 home runs and 77 RBI in 152 games with the Pirates and Twins. The Rockies will be getting a powerful first baseman who could really thrive in the mile high environment of Denver, Colorado.
Morneau is a guy that will get on base, but can hit doubles, homers, and crush many extra base hits. In 2013, 53 of his 148 hits went for extra-bases. That's something that will really help Morneau continue to be a threat in Colorado.
The Rockies 2013 first baseman, Todd Helton retired this season.
