Rockies, Atkins Avoid Arbitration

According to Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post, the Rockies avoided arbitration with infielder Garrett Atkins by signing him at $7.05MM for '09.  He can earn another $125K if he makes 700 plate appearances (something he's yet to do).  Atkins had submitted $7.95MM, with the Rox countering at $6.65MM.

Atkins, 29, hit .286/.328/.452 in 664 plate appearances last year.  He'll be eligible for free agency after the 2010 season.
