Rockies agree to two year deal with Jason Hammel

The Colorado Rockies have reached an agreement with starting pitcher Jason Hammel on a contract covering 2011 and 2012, his last two team control seasons after which he'll have one more arbitration eligible season. Terms of the agreement are not currently known, but this post will be updated as details come out. That said, the two year agreement would imply that it's your typical cost certainty for the team/security for the player type of deal.

Hammel has gone a combined 20-17 with a 4.57 ERA in two seasons with the Rockies after being acquired in a trade with the Tampa Bay Rays just prior to the 2009 season for Aneury Rodriguez. Hammel had filed in arbitration for a salary of $3.7 million in 2011, with the Rockies countering with an offer of $3.1 million. 

The signing leaves Ian Stewart as the only Rockies player whose salary is up in the air for 2011.
