Rockies sign Hundley to two-year deal

Denver, CO ( – The Colorado Rockies have signed catcher Nick
Hundley to a two-year contract.

The deal is reportedly worth $6.25 million — $3.1 million in 2015 and $3.15
million in 2016.

Hundley hit a combined .243 with six home runs and 22 RBI in 83 games with the
Orioles and Padres last season.

The 31-year-old Hundley played more than six seasons for San Diego before
being traded to Baltimore for pitcher Troy Patton in May. He was originally
selected by the Padres in the second round of the 2005 First-Year Player Draft
out of the University of Arizona.

Hundley is career .238 hitter with 52 homers and 214 RBI over 560 games with
the Padres and Orioles.

To make room on the 40-man roster for Hundley, Colorado designated pitcher
Chris Martin for assignment. The right-hander made his MLB debut last year and
did not earn a decision in 16 appearances.
