Fowler agrees to a 2-year deal with the Colorado Rockies

DENVER – Speedy outfielder Dexter Fowler and the Colorado Rockies avoided arbitration by agreeing to a two-year, $11.6-million contract.

The 26-year-old Fowler gets $3.25 million this year and $7.35 million in 2014. He also will receive a $1-million signing bonus, payable within 15 days of his contract being approved by Major League Baseball.

The Rockies announced the deal Monday.

Fowler is coming off a season in which he posted career highs in batting average (.300), RBIs (53), home runs (13) and games (143). Even more, Fowler’s speed allows him to track down many a flyball while playing center at spacious Coors Field.

Fowler was selected by Colorado in the 14th round of the 2004 draft.

The Rockies will hold their first full-squad workout Sunday in Scottsdale, Ariz.
