The Colorado Rockies avoided arbitration with All-Star center fielder Charlie Blackmon, agreeing to a one-year deal worth $14 million, according to a report from FanRag Sports.

Blackmon, 31, who will be eligible for free agency after the 2018 season, earned $7.3M last season.

Blackmon finished fifth in National League MVP voting after winning the NL batting title with a .331 average, leading the majors in hits (213), runs scored (137), triples (14) and total bases (383) on his way to earning a second straight Silver Slugger Award.
