Mark Reynolds will join the Colorado Rockies at spring training.

Wednesday evening, the club and the veteran slugger agreed to a one-year, minor-league deal that means Reynolds will have to earn his way onto the team’s 25-man opening day roster.

Reynolds, 33, played first base for Colorado last season. He hit 14 home runs and 53 RBI in 393 at bats.

The Rockies signed Ian Desmond to play first base this offseason. If Reynolds makes the roster, he would be Desmond’s logical backup.
