DENVER (AP) - People familiar with the negotiations tell The Associated Press that the Colorado Rockies have reached preliminary agreements on multiyear contracts with relievers Huston Street and Rafael Betancourt.
Street will get $22.5 million over three years and Betancourt $7.55 million over two seasons, the people said, speaking separately. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreements are not yet final.
Foxsports.com first reported the deal with Street.
Colorado also agreed to a $3.25 million, two-year deal with outfielder Ryan Spilborghs and a $1.9 million, one-year contract with pitcher Jason Hammel.
