Rockies, Right-Hander Ureña Agree To $3.5M, 1-Year Deal


The Colorado Rockies agreed to a one-year deal with right-hander José Ureña.

The deal is for $3.5 million, according to a person familiar with the contract who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the terms were not released. There’s a club option for 2024.

The 31-year-old Ureña started last season with Milwaukee and made four relief appearances before being released. He signed a minor league deal with the Rockies in May and joined the team in July.

He went 3-8 with a 5.14 ERA over 17 starts with Colorado. He had 60 strikeouts and 38 walks.
