Senzatela, Rockies agree to $3 million, 1-year contract

January 12

DENVER (AP) — Antonio Senzatela and the Colorado Rockies agreed Tuesday to a $3 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration.

A right-hander who turns 26 on Jan. 21, Senzatela was 5-3 with a 3.44 ERA in 12 starts last year. He earned $212,407 prorated from a $573,500 salary and had been eligible for arbitration for the first time.

Seven Rockies remain eligible to exchange proposed arbitration salaries on Friday: right-handers Carlos Estévez, Mychal Givens, Jon Gray and Robert Stephenson, left-hander Kyle Freeland, second baseman Ryan McMahon and outfielder Raimel Tapia.

Out Saturday Booker (hamsting) won't play in Saturday's game against Denver, Brendon Kleen of Locked on Suns reports.
Impact As expected, Booker will have to sit this one out after injuring his hamstring late into Friday's win. Expect Jevon Carter to start in his place and see a major uptick in minutes Saturday. The Suns' next contest isn't until Wednesday, so Booker should have a few days off to rest up and possibly return to the court then. The former Kentucky Wildcat hasn't been given a definite timetable yet, thus signifying that he'll likely be day-to-day moving forward.
