The Colorado Rockies had been targeting Justin Morneau as the replacement for Todd Helton and on Tuesday signed the former MVP to a two-year deal.

Morneau will make $13 million over two seasons after he hit just .259/.323/.411 season with 17 homers and 77 RBI in 152 games last season.

The Rockies traded center fielder Dexter Fowler to the Astros earlier on Tuesday and are planning to keep Michael Cuddyer in right field rather than shift him to first.
