The Rockies have signed 33-year old righty swinging infielder Ty Wigginton to a 2-year, $7.5 million dollar contract. Wigginton played in 154 games for the Baltimore Orioles last season and he was 144 of 581 (.248 avg, .727 OPS) with 63 runs scored, 22 homers and 76 RBIs. He made the All-Star team for the first time in his career last season. Wigginton has now played in 1,060 games in his first 9 years in the majors and he is 990 of 3,706 (.267 avg, .772 OPS) with 457 runs scored, 143 homers, 501 RBIs and 33 stolen bases. Wigginton’s biggest role will likely be sharing time at 1B with the declining Todd Helton, but he can also handle playing 2B, 3B and maybe even a corner outfield spot. I see the Rockies finding 500 at bats for Wigginton somehow in 2011.
