DENVER -- The Colorado Rockies and outfielder Seth Smith have agreed to a one-year, $2,415,000 deal, avoiding arbitration.
Smith played for Tri-City Dust Devils in 2004 and made his major-league debut in 2007 with the Rockies. He has spent the last three seasons with the Rockies, playing both left and right field, and has a .275 batting average with 51 homers and 181 RBIs in 487 major league games.
He hit .284 with 32 doubles, nine triples, 15 homers and 59 RBIs last season, when he made $429,000.
The Rockies announced the deal Sunday night.
