    Blackmon and the Colorado Rockies avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to a $14 million, one-year contract.

    Impact

    The 31-year-old centerfielder hit an NL-best .331 with 37 homers and 104 RBIs last year and made $7.3 million. He can become a free agent after this season. Blackmon turned in one of the most productive seasons from the leadoff spot in major league history. His 102 RBIs from the top of the order surpassed Darin Erstad's previous major league record of 100 set with the Angeles in 2000. Blackmon had 383 total bases - the most by a leadoff hitter for a season.

    News

    Blackmon agreed to a one-year, $14 million deal with the Rockies on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports.

    Impact

    This was Blackmon's final offseason as an arbitration-eligible player, as he will hit the open market next winter. He received almost double the $7.3 million he received last offseason. Blackmon, who turns 32 in July, has been a fantasy stud for several years due to his stolen-base totals and Coors-aided batting averages, but last season he set career bests in most relevant offensive categories and also had his best year in the field since 2012. He is a surefire first-round pick in re-draft leagues.
