The Colorado Rockies fresh off their free agent signing of outfielder Ian Desmond on December 13th, go out and nab a relief pitcher that may just turn into their 2017 closer.

Mike Dunn, who pitched out of the pen for the Miami Marlins the past six seasons, agreed to join Colorado for the next three seasons, with the deal worth $19 million plus incentives.

Dunn, 31, appeared in 51 games in 2016, down from his previous 72 in 2015, but posted a 6-1 record, a 3.40 ERA, and 38 strikeouts in 42.1 innings.

The incentive portion of the deal includes up to $1 million in games-finished clauses, as reported by MLB.com.

This is another promising move for the Rockies especially after finishing at 75-87 and in third place in the NL West in 2016. It looks like the Rockies are looking to get back into contention again.
