Rockies, Herrera agree to $900,000 deal for 2013
Herrera hit .262 with nine doubles, three homers, 12 RBIs and 29 runs in 86 games last season, when he was dogged by injuries. He missed a total of 39 games while on the DL, first with a strained right hamstring and then a left wrist infection.
The 28-year-old Venezuelan has spent his entire career with the Rockies after signing with them as a non-drafted free agent in 2002.
In 294 career major league games, he's hit .259 with seven homers and 50 RBIs.
