The Rockies have signed 29-year old righty swinging outfielder Willy Taveras to a minor league deal. He played in 27 games for the Nationals last season and he was 7 of 35 (.200 avg, .500 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen bases. Taveras has now played in 670 games in his first 7 years in the majors and he is 662 of 2,412 (.274 avg, .647 OPS) with 358 runs scored, 8 homers, 128 RBIs and 195 stolen bases. Taveras will get a chance to win a job on the Rockies’ bench this spring but he’s a longshot.
