Rockies avoid arbitration with Clint Barmes and Taylor Buchholz

New, comments

The Denver Post's Troy Renck is reporting that shortstop Clint Barmes and reliever Taylor Buchholz have agreed to terms and will be signing 2010 contracts with the Rockies, avoiding arbitration hearings. The Rockies still have to work out contracts with Ryan Spilborghs, Rafael Betancourt, Jason Hammel, Huston Street and Jorge De La Rosa or face arbitration hearings for those five.

Renck says that he will update later today with terms, so keep an eye on the Post's blog for that. 

UPDATE: Apparently, the team is also pretty close to reaching an agreement with De La Rosa.
