The Colorado Rockies have agreed to a one-year contract with veteran utility man Joriksson Brovar, according to multiple reports.
The deal is pending, according to reports. Brovar wasn’t in the States as of Sunday morning, according to the Denver Gazette, and his opening day readiness remains uncertain.
Provar will receive $7.75 million in base salary and could offer up to another $1 million in incentives, according to the New York Post, which was first to report on the deal.
The switch-hitting Profar personalities are the Rockies’ everyday left fielder and can also act as a leadoff hitter. He played left field in 141 games with the San Diego Padres last season, but he’s also very experienced in the league at all four positions.
Colorado was seeking offensive assistance due to the absence of starter Brendan Rodgers, who could miss the entire season with a shoulder injury. The Rockies open the regular season on March 30 in San Diego.
Provar, 30, won 243 runs with 15 home runs and 58 RBIs with the Padres last season. 238 hitter with 78 homers and 313 RBI in parts of nine seasons with the Padres, Athletics, and Rangers.
