News: Kendrick and the Colorado Rockies have agreed to a $5.5 million, one-year contract.
Impact: The 30-year-old right-hander is 74-68 with a 4.42 ERA in eight major league seasons, all with the Philadelphia Phillies, and has won 10 games or 11 games six times. Kendrick, whose agreement was announced Wednesday, is a durable sinkerball specialist, but has a 5.26 ERA in seven career appearances at Coors Field.

News: Kendrick agreed to a one-year, $5.5 million contract with the Rockies on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: The right-hander can also earn an additional $500,000 if he reaches 190 innings, a number he surpassed for the first time in 2014. Kendrick hasn't turned in an xFIP under 4.00 in any of his eight major league seasons, and there's very little to suggest a skills breakout could be coming in his age-30 campaign. While he does own a slightly above-average 46.1% groundball rate for his career, Kendrick will make for an unappealing option even in NL-only leagues.
