1/17/2006 - MLB Zach Day Colorado Rockies + more

DENVER -- Right-hander Zach Day agreed to a one-year,
$600,000 contract with the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday, avoiding
salary arbitration.

Day, who made $357,000 last season, can earn two $25,000 bonuses
for topping 140 and 150 innings.

Day was 1-3 with a 6.85 ERA in 17 games for the Rockies last
year before breaking his right thumb in September and ending the
season on the 60-day disabled list. The Rockies acquired Day and
outfielder J.J. Davis from Washington on July 13 for outfielder
Preston Wilson and cash.

Day's agreement left pitcher Sunny Kim and catcher Yorvit
Torrealba as the remaining Rockies in arbitration.
