Rusin, Rockies agree at $1,687,500, avoid salary arbitration
DENVER (AP) — Left-handed reliever Chris Rusin and the Colorado Rockies have agreed to one-year contract worth $1,687,500, a deal with a $400,000 raise that avoided salary arbitration.
Under the terms of the deal announced Thursday, Rusin would earn an additional $25,000 each for 40 and 50 games pitched and $50,000 should he make the All-Star Game.
The 32-year-old was 2-3 with a 6.09 ERA in 49 appearances last season. In the postseason, Rusin threw four scoreless innings.
Rusin had a phenomenal 2017 season when he went 5-1 with a 2.65 ERA.
