Rockies Sign Steve Finley

The Rockies signed center fielder Steve Finley to a minor league contract today.  He'll serve as Willy Taveras's backup.  The soon-to-be 42 year-old didn't do anything with the bat last year but still got 426 ABs for the Giants.

PECOTA sees him hitting .245/.318/.378 in 186 plate appearances, while ZiPS sees .227/.291/.335.  Finley's range in center is obviously diminished, but if he can outhit the PECOTA a little bit he'll be a fine backup.
