SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Matt Belisle, the Colorado Rockies' most consistent reliever last season, has signed a deal through 2012 that buys out his first year of free agency.
The right-hander is the sixth non-free agent that Colorado has signed to a multiyear contract this offseason, joining Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez, Matt Lindstrom, Rafael Betancourt and Jason Hammel.
The Denver Post reported that Belisle, who was already under contract for $2.35 million this season, will get $3.775 million in 2012, bringing his total deal to $6.125 million.
Belisle worked 92 innings in 2010, compiling a 2.93 ERA.
