According to Troy Renck of the Denver Post, the Rockies have signed right-hander Wilton Lopez to a one-year, $1.7625 million contract and left-hander Josh Outman to a one-year, $675,000 contract, avoiding salary arbitration with each pitcher.

Both were arbitration-eligible for the first time.

Lopez posted a 2.17 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 54/8 K/BB ratio in 66 1/3 innings last season for the Astros. He was traded to Colorado in early December as part of a four-player swap.

Outman had an 8.19 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 40/20 K/BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings last summer for the Rox.

    God, I can’t wait til the season starts and I don’t have to read any more avoiding arbitration stories. No offense, Drew. Not about you at all. It’s just that they’re even more boring than X is getting checked out by the BloSox stories.

      This one is worth it tho, I never heard of Wilton Lopez as the Tigers almost never play the Astros, but just from his numbers the guy looks good. I hope Colorado doesn’t destroy him.
