AP source: Desmond, Rockies agree to $70M, 5-year contract

OXON HILL, Md. (AP) All-Star free agent outfielder Ian Desmond and the Colorado Rockies have agreed to a $70 million, five-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the agreement had not been announced.

A versatile 31-year-old, Desmond hit .285 with 22 homers and 86 RBIs this year in his lone season with Texas, earning his first All-Star trip since 2012. He played shortstop from 2011-15, then was shifted to the outfield by the Rangers. Colorado may move him to first base.
